Israel intensifies Southern Gaza attack as pressure mounts for ceasefire
cancel

As tensions escalate in the Gaza Strip, Israeli forces continue their intense bombardment despite mounting international pressure for an immediate ceasefire. Overnight, the southern city of Rafah witnessed a fireball illuminating the sky, marking another episode of relentless airstrikes.

This assault extends even to Gaza City in the north, where Israeli troops persist in targeting the largest hospital, exacerbating an already dire humanitarian situation.

The Gaza health ministry reports a staggering toll from the recent violence, with 76 Palestinians killed and 102 injured in the past 24 hours alone. This brings the total number of casualties since October 7 to a harrowing 32,490 deaths and 74,889 injuries, highlighting the staggering toll exacted by the conflict.

The indiscriminate nature of the strikes is underscored by the ministry's acknowledgement that it does not differentiate between combatants and non-combatants among the casualties.

Amid the onslaught, the Palestinian Red Crescent warns of thousands trapped in the Nasser hospital in Khan Younis, their lives hanging in the balance as Israeli forces encircle medical facilities.

This dire situation amplifies concerns raised by international bodies, including the recent UN Security Council resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire. Despite this diplomatic effort, the fighting persists unabated, further deepening the humanitarian crisis in the region.

Reacting to the international pressure and the UN resolution, Hamas's top political leader, Ismail Haniyeh, addressed the media in Tehran after holding talks with Iranian officials. Haniyeh emphasized Israel's growing political isolation and loss of support, signalling a shift in dynamics at the UN Security Council.

As the violence rages on and civilian casualties mount, the urgent need for a cessation of hostilities becomes increasingly apparent. The international community watches with growing concern as the situation in Gaza deteriorates, with hopes pinned on diplomatic efforts to bring about much-needed peace.

However, amid the ongoing devastation, the path to a resolution remains fraught with challenges, leaving the fate of those caught in the crossfire hanging in the balance.
