UN seemingly halves estimate of Gazan women, children killed | JPost - 11 May 2024 |

The UN  also highlighted that the plurality of identified fatalities were men (40%), while children were (32%) and women (20%).

The Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) released a report in January that showed major discrepancies in the fatality reports. The research concluded that such discrepancies were most likely caused by manipulation.

Professor Abraham Wyner showed that the Hamas-controlled Gaza Health Ministry has been "faking" casualty numbers, in an article for Tablet Magazine on March 7.

He concluded that in war, the pattern of deaths should be irregular as the intensity of war is irregular. the UN reported that the number of deaths climbed by 15%, which is statistically impossible.
