Gaza (Web Desk): At least 3500 Palestinians have been martyred and 12000 injured in 12-day Israeli bombardment on Gaza Strip, while in West Bank, 62 have been martyred and over 1300 are injured.

Moreover, US President Joe Biden visited Israel on Wednesday, to show his support for Israel and urged restraint. He also announced $100 million in aid for humanitarian assistance to civilians in Gaza and the West Bank.
