Israel-Palestine War: Latest 10 Updates;  US veto on ceasefire, ammunition sale, rising death toll and more

As the Israeli-Palestinian war continues to affect human lives, here are 10 latest updates on the conflict involving Hamas and Israeli forces.

Loss of an Israeli hostage

Sahar Baruch, an Israeli hostage, died in Hamas captivity. His death was confirmed on Saturday by Kibbutz Be’eri. Sahar was taken hostage on October 7. A Hamas video claims that Baruch’s death occurred during an Israeli rescue attempt. The Israel Defense Forces refute this claim, saying Hamas assassinated Baruch.

American veto of the ceasefire

The Israeli army’s air and ground offensive in Gaza continues after the US veto in the UN Security Council blocked a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire. This decision was condemned globally. Many criticized it as encouraging continued violence.

Gazans face bombing

More than two million Palestinians in Gaza, confined to a small area, suffer continuous Israeli bombardments. Even areas declared safe zones by Israel are not targeted.

The United States authorizes the sale of ammunition

Joe Biden’s administration, as global calls for a ceasefire grow, maintains its stance against an indefinite truce. The US State Department has authorized an emergency sale of significant tank ammunition to Israel, totaling more than $106 million and including nearly 14,000 rounds.

British surgeon testifies about war crimes

Ghassan Abu Sitta, a British Palestinian surgeon with Doctors Without Borders, testified before a British war crimes investigation unit about his experiences in Gaza.

Indian Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar discussed the situation in Gaza with Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh. India has reaffirmed its long-standing position on Palestine.

Death toll rises in Gaza

The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza reported more than 17,700 deaths. About two-thirds of them are women and children, and many of them are missing under the rubble. Israeli estimates indicate that at least 7,000 Hamas militants were killed.

Analysis of civilian deaths

An Israeli analysis has found that civilian deaths in Gaza exceed global averages for conflict zones. Yagil Levy, a professor of sociology, noted a civilian mortality rate of 61% in this conflict, Al Jazeera reported.

UNRWA confirms employee deaths

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) reported 133 staff deaths in Gaza. The agency expressed grave concerns over the untenable situation for civilians in the region. The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Hospital in Deir al-Balah, located in central Gaza, confirmed receiving 71 of these bodies and 160 wounded.

More Palestinians killed

On December 9, Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian in the West Bank. Another Palestinian died from his injuries during an Israeli raid the day before. According to AP, 274 Palestinians have been killed in the West Bank since the start of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict two months ago.
