The total number of dead also does not include the approximately 10,000 people who are still missing and trapped under the rubble, the officials added.

Both the UN and US officials have previously appraised the figures from the Ministry of Health in Gaza as credible.

    Zionists seem convinced that “incomplete information” means “fake, made up death.” A child’s body not being tied to a full name does not mean there is not a dead child.

    There is a group of climate change deniers who believe that adjustments to data made by NOAA and explained clearly (to ensure comparability over time even if, for example, the sampling location is moved or readings are taken at noon instead of 3pm) are proof that they are “making up” climate change rather than proof that accuracy is important in science and yes the data shows the planet is still warming up.

    Same energy.

    My comment from the other article that is currently around:

    We are talking bodys that are mutilated, often beyond recognition. So you find a male body in the age range of 14-20. Now do you count it as a child or as an adult? If you know it is Abdul Raheeem 17 years old, you can make that assessment. But otherwise you can only make a best guess. Problem is, if you only find half a body and it is decayed mostly. The most reliable way to distinguish male and female skeletons is the pelvis. For the other bones you have indications but they aren’t as definite. So if you find an upper body without the pelvis you again have to guess. And digging up mass graves or collecting body parts after a bombing is not exactly the environment for a in depths medical analysis.

    This is the problem why we have incomplete data. And this is why there is 10.000 bodys that are still unidentified. Note this is not the number of bodies presumed under the rubble. That is another 10.000. So we have roughly the following split:

    25.000 Bodies identified (We know the name, age and gender of the killed person)

    10.000 Bodies unidentified (We have to guess for age and gender)

    10.000 Bodies presumed under the rubble, but no means to recover, identify and properly burry them yet. (We have to guess based on other statistics how the gender and age is distributed)

    So that put us at 35.000 confirmed dead and another 10.000 presumed dead.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    In the UN report, only the total number of fatalities whose identities (such as name and date of birth) have been documented was published, leading to confusion.

    According to Haq, the ministry published a breakdown for 24,686 fully identified deaths out of the total 34,622 fatalities recorded in Gaza as of April 30.

    The fully identified death toll comprises of 7,797 children, 4,959 women, 1,924 elderly, and 10,006 men, the UN spokesperson said, citing the Gaza health ministry.

    The health authority in Gaza noted that the documentation process of casualties’ full identification details is still ongoing, Haq added.

    Israel’s months-long siege of the Palestinian enclave has since pulverized large parts of Gaza and drastically diminished critical supplies, exposing the entire population of more than 2.2 million people to the risk of famine.

    CNN has seen a daily report from the Palestinian health ministry which matches the number OCHA published in the revised version.


    The original article contains 495 words, the summary contains 152 words. Saved 69%. I’m a bot and I’m open source!

    The change was that the health Ministry was able to report deaths again, which did not have the same breakdown as the local news had been reporting while the health Ministry was unable to. Still the same total.
