Gaza’s Hamas-run health ministry has released its latest death toll of the war with Israel.

It says some 22,313 people are now known to have been killed since 7 October, and a further 57,296 injured.

Recall that Israel began its offensive against the Palestinian enclave after Hamas attacked the country in a series of cross-border attacks, killing at least 1,200 people – and taking 240 others hostage.

Meanwhile, the UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon says it is deeply concerned about a potential escalation of violence

A spokesperson for Unifil says a wider conflict would have devastating consequences for both Israel and Lebanon, and urges all parties to show restraint.

It comes after Hamas deputy leader Saleh al-Arouri was killed in a Beirut blast. Israel has not confirmed whether it was behind the explosion, but has described it as a surgical strike on Hamas.
