Israel -Hamas War: Israel Steps Up Offensive In Gaza

Israel -Hamas War: Israel Steps Up Offensive In Gaza: Israel is hammering Gaza with airstrikes, hitting hundreds of targets and reducing neighborhoods to rubble, as new atrocities are uncovered in its territory after a devastating attack by Hamas militants.

Meanwhile, Hospitals in Gaza are overwhelmed and experiencing shortages of drugs, medical supplies and electricity, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) warned on Wednesday, as a humanitarian crisis rapidly unfolds in the Palestinian enclave under Israeli bombardment.

Hundreds of people have been displaced since the conflict began. The death toll in Gaza has risen to 950 and 5,000 others have been wounded in the Israeli airstrikes, according to the Gaza Health Ministry on Wednesday. While at least 1,200 people have died in Israel following Hamas’ unprecedented attack on Saturday, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

Also, at least seven journalists have been killed in the Gaza Strip since Hamas launched its brazen assault on Saturday, according to press freedom groups and media reports. That number could rise even further in the coming days as Israel carries out retaliatory strikes against Hamas, while the terror group continues waging its offensive against the Jewish state.

The US President Joe Biden described the Hamas attack as an “act of sheer evil,” and confirmed that 14 Americans were killed while others were held captive. Up to 150 hostages are believed to be held in Gaza, an Israeli official said.

It will be recalled that the Hamas had initiated an attack on Israel last weekend prompting Israel to respond by declaring war against them.
