Ninety people have been killed in the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours, the Gaza Ministry of Health said Sunday, bringing the death toll in the strip to 30,410 since October 7 as fighting continues to rage.

Among the dead were 11 people killed in an Israeli airstrike on a refugee camp next to a maternity hospital, according the ministry.

A number of victims also remain under rubble, according to the health ministry.

Some 177 injuries have been recorded in the 24 hours to Sunday morning, bringing the total number of injuries to 71,700, the Gaza health ministry said.

CNN cannot independently confirm the numbers due to the lack of international media access to Gaza.

The Israeli military on Sunday said that it had conducted “an extensive series” of overnight strikes on “terrorist infrastructure and operatives” in western Khan Younis.

During the strikes, the Israeli military claimed to have killed Hamas militants operating from civilian urban facilities. The infrastructure targeted overnight included underground facilities, anti-tank missile launch posts and meeting points, the Israel Defense Forces said.

The Israeli military said it had killed 30 militants in the 24 hours before Sunday morning.
