Gaza's bloodiest war so far began with a Hamas attack on southern Israel on October 7, resulting in the deaths of 1,194 people, most of them civilians, according to an AFP count based on Israeli official figures.

The militants also took 251 hostages, 120 of whom remain in Gaza, 41 of whom the military says are dead.

Israeli bombing and ground assaults have killed at least 36,586 people in Gaza, mostly civilians, according to the Hamas-run territory's health ministry.

Israel faces increasing diplomatic isolation over its conduct of the war, with cases pending against it in two international courts, and several European governments recognising the Palestinian state.

Israel has often accused Hamas and its Gaza-based allies of using schools, health facilities and other civilian infrastructure as operational centres – a charge the militants deny.

UNRWA, which coordinates almost all aid to Gaza, has been in crisis since January, when Israel accused about a dozen of its 13,000 staff of being involved in the October 7 attack.

Its head, Philip Lazzarini, said in an article published in the New York Times last week that Israel should “end its campaign against UNRWA.”
