Health services in the Gaza Strip have reportedly reached a “critical stage,” according to Palestinian health officials. The Islamic University, which Hamas terrorists are allegedly utilising as a training facility, was among 2,600 “terrorist targets” within the Gaza Strip that had been hit, according to the Israeli Defence Forces’ daily bulletin.
With the fighting with Hamas still going on, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and opposition leader Benny Gantz have decided to establish an emergency cabinet.
Due to Israel’s continued “complete siege” of the Gaza Strip, which prevents it from transferring its own supplies to the area or its more than two million residents, the only functioning power plant in the territory has now run out of fuel.
Israel is seeing an increase in fatalities, and
Wednesday sees a fifth day of violence in the Gaza Strip as rockets continue to fall.
After being subjected to a vicious, multifaceted assault over the weekend by the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas, the Israeli military said that it is gathering troops close to the Gaza Strip as part of its reaction.
As the U.N. expresses worry over harm to civilians, the U.S., whose State Secretary Antony Blinken is scheduled to visit in Israel on Thursday, is in talks with Egypt about a potential humanitarian corridor from the Gaza Strip. The Hamas terrorist assault on civilian targets on Saturday also included a music festival.
An important Russian official cautioned that the Israeli situation might have financial and oil market repercussions. Since a large portion of the world’s oil production is situated in the Middle East, crude prices are frequently sensitive to political unrest there.
At least 1,200 Israelis have died and more than 2,700 have been injured as a result of the continuing Israeli-Hamas conflict, while 950 Palestinians have died and 5,000 have been injured in Gaza.
