Genocide by numbers

At the start of the current Gaza conflict, western intelligence agencies put the number of Hamas fighters at 20 to 25,000. AI systems used by Israel’s military came up with a kill list of 37,000 names — 12,000 thousand more people than the highest estimates for Hamas fighters. Last week, seven aid workers were killed by the IDF in a deliberate attack. At the time of writing, approximately 200 aid workers have been killed since the start of the violence and more than 33,000 Palestinians have been killed — including 14,500 children and 9,500 women.

You do the maths.
