As the world remains hopeful with Free Palestine protests, Israel hit the Gaza Strip for the 28th consecutive day, creating a humanitarian catastrophe.
Hamas’ unprecedented ambush on southern Israel (7 October) left 1,405 people dead. The militant group are believed to have taken approximately 220 hostages, including a number of foreigners and dual nationals. Five of them have been released, offering hope to the families of those still captive.
In Gaza, the death toll has surpassed 9,227 at the time of writing – 3,826 of whom are children, with Israeli air strikes reportedly killing a child every 10 minutes since the start of the war. A further 32,516 people have been injured.
As the war escalates between Hamas and Israel, there is mounting concern across the globe.
The Ministry of Health said there are approximately 50,000 pregnant women in the Gaza Strip, with around 166 "unsafe births" a day.
"It is expected that 5,500 women will give birth in the coming month," they said in a statement, adding that untreated water has forced diseases to become more widespread.
With a lack of basic human supplies including food, electricity and connection, social media users in Gaza desperately continue to try and share their first-hand experience of living in a war zone.
Journalists, 36 of whom have been killed, are charging phones in cars when possible. Still, with poor connection and little battery, it's proving a problem for some to fight the algorithm.
Some harrowing Instagram Story updates are simply to inform people they are still alive.
Here are 16 brave Palestinians and organisations fighting to shed light on the situation in Gaza:
The Al Jazeera correspondent bravely continues to work at the scene, despite mourning his entire immediate family (including his wife, son, daughter and grandson) from an Israeli airstrike.
In a statement, Al Jazeerasaid: "Their home was targeted in the Nuseirat camp in the centre of Gaza, where they had sought refuge after being displaced by the initial bombardment in their neighbourhood, following Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu’s call for all civilians to move south.
"The network strongly condemns the indiscriminate targeting and killing of innocent civilians in Gaza, which has led to the loss of Wael al-Dahdouh’s family and countless others."
King is an American writer and activist who uses his platform to spread political awareness to his 4.9 million followers. He became a voice for the Black Lives Matter movement and is now shedding light on the catastrophe, using footage from Palestinians at the scene.
