The Palestinian death toll from Israeli strikes on the Gaza Strip rose to 22,600 since the onset of the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict, the Gaza-based Health Ministry said on Friday.

The ministry said in a statement that the Israeli army, within the past 24 hours, launched 15 attacks on Gaza, resulting in 162 deaths and 296 injuries.

This brings the total number of deaths to 22,600 and injuries to 57,910 since October 7, 2023, when Israel started its military operations against Gaza in response to a surprise Hamas attack.

Meanwhile, the Israeli military announced on Friday that "for humanitarian reasons," it will suspend military operations in the Tel al-Sultan district of Rafah City in the Gaza Strip from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time to facilitate supplies.

Starting from Friday, the Salah al-Din Road, which runs from north to south in the Gaza Strip, will be closed, and the Rashid Road along the Mediterranean Sea will be open. From 9:00 a.m. (0700 GMT) to 4:00 p.m. (1400 GMT) on Friday, residents in northern Gaza can walk or drive to the southern region.
