As the fist week of the war following Hamas’s massacre of communities in the South comes to a close, and Israelis prepare for Shabbat, authorities are continuing to identify the bodies of victims. By Thursday afternoon, the bodies of 854 citizens had been collected and were brought to an identification point, with 361 identified and 264 buried.

Overall estimates continue to indicate that more than 1,300 were killed in the attack, mostly civilians, at the Nova music festival and 20 communities along the Gaza border, with the death toll at Kibbutz Be’eri and Kfar Aza bearing the highest brunt, with reports of 100 victims in each town.
