704 Including 143 Children Killed, Claims Gaza’s Health Ministry

According to Hamas military spokesman Abu Ubaida, if there is an unprovoked attack on people in the Gaza Strip, Hamas militants will kill an Israeli civilian hostage.

The event occurred as 100 bodies were found by Israeli forces in a small farming town where a hostage situation took place, according to news agency AP.

Over 1,600 people have been killed so far in the ongoing battle between Israel and Hamas militants on both sides.

In the course of the four-day standoff, Israeli strikes have resulted in 704 fatalities, including 143 children and 105 women, and over 4,000 injuries, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. throughout addition, the Hamas offensive has caused at least 900 deaths and 2,600 injuries throughout Israel.

The hideouts of the terrorist organisation Hamas will be destroyed, according to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Israel, according to him, has “only started” attacking Hamas. “We were against this war. It was imposed upon us in the cruellest manner possible. Israel would, however, complete the war, he added, even though it did not start it.

On Tuesday, Netanyahu compared the violent Islamist terrorist organisation ISIS to Hamas in a tweet. ISIS is Hamas. “The forces of civilization must assist Israel in defeating Hamas, just as they worked together to defeat ISIS,” he said.

Israel announced on Monday that it was enforcing a “total blockade” on the Gaza Strip, prohibiting the entry of food and fuel. After Hamas’ strikes on Israel on Saturday, Israel cut off the region’s energy supply, leaving Gaza completely without electricity.

The Islamist group Hamas, which rules Gaza, has threatened to execute an Israeli prisoner for each house of civilians that is randomly struck. In a video statement, Abu Ubaida, a spokesman for Hamas, said that Israel should be prepared to “pay the price” for the release of the prisoners.

Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority, is scheduled to travel to Moscow, according to the news agency Reuters, while Israel is receiving new supply of air defences, ammunition, and other security aid from the US military.

The US, France, Germany, Italy, and the UK issued a unified statement on Tuesday endorsing Israel in its current war with Hamas.

“We make clear that the terrorist actions of Hamas have no justification, no legitimacy and must be universally condemned. Our countries will support Israel in its efforts to defend itself and its people against such atrocities,” the statement read.

On Monday, violence was denounced in Israel and the Palestinian Territories against both Jews and Palestinians. The West, meanwhile, was referred to as “shortsighted” by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

“I cannot but fail to mention the destructive policy of the United States which thwarts collective efforts within the framework of the Quartet of international mediators,” Lavrov was said to have said.

At least three Hezbollah fighters were killed by Israeli shelling of Lebanon on Monday. The US, however, issued a warning to Iran stating that it did not want the confrontation to escalate and that Iran should stay out of the Israeli dispute. No proof that Iran was behind the most recent strikes on Israel, according to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, despite the fact that Tehran and Hamas have had close links for a long time.

In response to Hamas’ attack on Israel, the European Union announced that funding to the Palestinians had been discontinued. The change happened as a result of EU nations complaining that the bloc’s executive had gone too far.

The Gaza Strip’s ruling organisation, Hamas, surprised and attacked Israel’s southern regions early on Saturday. On both sides, there have been more than 1,600 fatalities. Israeli media reports that since Hamas’s unexpected attack, there have been 900 fatalities. At least 704 Palestinians, including 143 children and 105 women, have reportedly been killed in Israeli airstrikes, according to Gaza’s Health Ministry.
