The Israeli army is accused of carrying out attacks on Palestinians, resulting in the death of nearly 2,000 Palestinians.
An additional 70 Palestinians lost their lives, and hundreds were injured in Israeli airstrikes targeting three convoys moving from Gaza.
In the West Bank, 16 Palestinians were killed when the Israeli army opened fire on a demonstration in solidarity with the citizens of Gaza. Meanwhile, Gaza came under tank attacks, and Israeli hostages were discovered in Gaza following the Israeli bombardment.
Additionally, Jewish settlers were reported to have shot unarmed Palestinians in the presence of the army.
Arab TV exposed what they claim are lies of the Israeli army, with an investigative report proving that four Palestinians shot as fighters were unarmed.
A journalist was killed, and six others were injured due to shelling and firing by the Israeli army along the Lebanese border.
In response to Israel’s attack on Lebanon, the Lebanese resistance organization Hezbollah launched an attack on four Israeli army bases, resulting in the deaths of 1,300 Israelis, according to reports.
On a different note, Israeli media released a video showing children allegedly held hostage by Hamas. In the video, it can be seen that Hamas members are dressing the children, giving them water, and swinging them.
It’s worth noting that after Israel issued an ultimatum to vacate Gaza within 24 hours, Saudi Arabia rejected the forced evacuation of Palestinians from Gaza and condemned Israel’s targeting of the civilian population.
Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan called his British counterpart and a high-ranking European Union official, emphasizing that Israel should adhere to international laws and human rights, end the blockade of Gaza, and allow the delivery of aid goods.
On another front, Israeli media has claimed that the ongoing conflict in Gaza has led to Saudi Arabia freezing the process of normalizing relations with Israel.
The United Nations also voiced opposition to Israel’s threat to evacuate Gaza within 24 hours, expressing concerns that such displacement could trigger a new humanitarian crisis involving millions of people.
The US Secretary of State embarked on a diplomatic mission aimed at securing a ceasefire in Gaza and the recovery of Israeli hostages. After meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, King Abdullah II of Jordan, and the Qatari Prime Minister, he arrived in Saudi Arabia, where he held meetings with high-ranking government officials.
Meanwhile, in response to Israel’s evacuation threat, Hamas declared that they will not leave Gaza. In a statement, they expressed their determination not to become refugees again, as in 1948, and accused Israel of attempting to discourage the citizens of Gaza.
Hamas spokesman Khaled Qadoumi added that Palestinians will never leave their land and claimed that Israel is exerting pressure on international organizations to force a withdrawal.
Furthermore, the spokesman of Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, Abu Ubeida, issued a warning, stating that if Israel were to launch a ground attack, its army would face annihilation.
