In the last 24 hours, 96 Palestinians were killed and 172 were injured, the ministry added.

After nearly five months of Israel’s air and ground campaign, around 85 percent of Gaza’s 2.3 million residents have fled their homes, most houses are damaged or destroyed, famine looms and disease is rife, say aid agencies.

The war began when Hamas fighters attacked Israel on October 7, killing around 1,200 people and seizing 253 hostages, according to Israeli tallies.

Hamas is currently weighing a proposal, agreed by Israel at talks with mediators in Paris last week, for a ceasefire that would suspend fighting for 40 days.

According to a source close to the talks, the proposal would see militants free some but not all of the hostages they are holding, in return for the release of hundreds of Palestinian detainees, a surge in humanitarian aid for Gaza and Israeli troops pulling out of populated areas in the enclave.
