The health ministry in Gaza said Tuesday that at least 37,164 people have been killed in the territory during more than eight months of war between Israel and Palestinian militants.

The toll includes at least 40 deaths over the past 24 hours, a ministry statement said, adding that 84,832 people have been wounded in the Gaza Strip since the war began when Hamas militants attacked Israel on October 7.
