Palestinians evacuate wounded in Israeli aerial bombing on Jabaliya, near Gaza City, Oct. 11, 2023.

It's been 100 days since the deadly Hamas attack on Israel, which prompted Israel's ongoing bombardment of Gaza.

Israel says it aims to destroy Hamas. By Palestinian officials' tally, more than 23,000 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza, and about one in every 40 people there have been wounded in just three months. Hamas' Oct. 7 attack killed some 1,200 people in Israel.

We take a look at what has happened over the past 100 days.
