By Press TV Website Staff

The genocidal Israeli war on Gaza, which was launched on October 7 last year, completed 175 days on Friday, leaving behind a trail of death, destruction, displacement and starvation.

These 175 days have been marked by innocent civilians killed in cold blood, hospitals and schools razed down in bombings, women sexually abused and young boys arrested and brutally interrogated.

Human rights observers have described the events unfolding in the besieged Gaza Strip as a textbook case of genocide and ethnic cleansing, with the death toll already topping 32,600.
