UN Revises Gaza Casualty Data, Women and Children Deaths Drop by Nearly 50%

The UN has changed the numbers about how many people died in the war between Israel and Hamas. The new numbers show that almost half as many women and children have been killed in Gaza as was previously thought.

Using data from Gaza's Ministry of Health and Government Media Office, the UN put out reports on the number of people who died in the war. According to the new report, 7,797 Palestinian children and 4,959 Palestinian women have been killed in the war. The numbers for women have dropped by at least 47.8 percent, and the numbers for children have dropped by at least 46.2 percent.

It is said that 34,844 Palestinians have died, but as of April 30, only 24,686 of them had been recognized. The numbers for deaths of children and women come from the totals that have been found. Also, the stories don't include more than 10,000 people who were "reported missing or under the rubble," according to the Government Media Office of Gaza.

It's important to remember that the numbers for Palestinian deaths come from the Government Media Office and the Ministry of Health in Gaza, both of which are run by Hamas. Because of this, a lot of people have doubts about the numbers that these groups share.

Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, said that the number of deaths in Gaza has been inflated and that almost half of the people who died were not civilians but Hamas soldiers. The data on deaths in Gaza has also been called "completely unreliable" by a study from the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

Unfortunately, the UN says that its teams in Gaza are unable to independently check the numbers because of the situation there and the large number of deaths. Even though the number of deaths has been updated, every woman or child who dies in this war is still a tragedy.

It is important to be very careful when looking at death tolls from war zones, especially if they come from a side that is fighting, like Hamas. To make sure the numbers are correct and reliable, they need to be carefully looked over and confirmed.
