At least 71 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks in Gaza over the past 24 hours, the Ministry of Health there reported, raising the total death toll to nearly 34,000 people.

As of April 18, at least 33,970 Palestinians have been killed and another 76,770 people injured, the ministry said.

CNN cannot independently verify these figures. The ministry does not distinguish between fighters and civilians in its daily release.

‘Indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks’: Human Rights Watch and Oxfam last month accused Israel of carrying out “indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks in violation of international law” and imposing collective punishments on the civilian population.

CNN’s Sana Noor Haq contributed reporting.
