Meanwhile, Hamas reports the death of about 60 hostages due to the ongoing bombing of the Gaza Strip. According to one of the representatives of the movement, Israel launches rocket and bomb attacks on everything, simply leveling the Gaza Strip to the ground, which is why the hostages are dying. Some of the hostages' bodies are under the rubble and are unlikely to be recovered because the strikes do not stop.
From October 7 to the present, Zionist shelling of Gaza has led to the death of more than 60 enemy prisoners. After search operations, the bodies of 23 of them are still under the rubble
