Israel Hamas conflict
Israel Hamas War: In the early hours of this morning, Israel’s military launched an intense assault on the Gaza Strip, marking the deadliest offensive against Israel since 1973. The conflict between Israel and Hamas continues to escalate, with the death toll from the war against Palestinian militants surpassing a grim milestone of over 1,100.

The Israeli army reported striking more than 500 targets within the blockaded and impoverished Gaza Strip during overnight clashes. Simultaneously, skirmishes persisted in seven to eight locations within Israel, near the Gaza Strip.

This latest wave of violence unfolded just two days after Hamas initiated a barrage of rockets and sent a surge of fighters, shocking Israel with a massive attack. These attackers targeted civilians and took over 100 hostages.

In response to these events, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged the nation to brace themselves for what he described as a “long and challenging” war. This call to preparedness came following the aforementioned attack where Hamas fired thousands of rockets at Israel and dispatched fighters, resulting in the tragic loss of civilian lives and the taking of hostages.

The international impact of this Israel Hamas conflict has been significant, with the US confirming the loss of several American lives in the surprise land-sea-air attack on Israel. In response, the US has deployed warships and fighter jet squadrons to support Israel.

Thailand also reported casualties, with 12 of its citizens losing their lives and 11 being held captive. Tragically, citizens from Brazil, Britain, France, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, Nepal, and Ukraine have either lost their lives, been abducted, or are still missing due to the ongoing crisis.

Stay tuned for further updates as the situation unfolds. Our thoughts are with all those affected by this devastating conflict.
