Israeli-Palestinian War: Fighting Intensifies in Gaza as Tensions Rise on Lebanese Border

Israel struck the Jabalia refugee camp in northern Gaza on Sunday, killing at least 57 people, while heavy fighting in Khan Younis intensified, with the Palestinian death toll reaching 18,000.

Israel continued its gradual advance towards Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip, with heavy fighting reported in the city.

Residents said Israeli tanks had reached the center of Khan Younis, which Israel had once designated as a “safe” area to which Palestinians could flee.

With more than 85 percent of Gaza’s 2.3 million residents displaced by Israel’s relentless bombing campaign, UN agencies say there is no safe place to flee in the entire strip. .

Israel said its artillery corps had begun operating inside the Gaza Strip for the first time since its ground incursion began.

Hamas, meanwhile, said its fighters were able to target several Israeli tanks in northern Gaza and Khan Younis.

The group also released footage showing an Israeli tank being targeted in Tal al-Zaatar in northern Gaza as clashes raged across the enclave.

On a newly launched website, the Israeli army said 425 of its soldiers had been killed since October 7, including 97 since the start of the ground invasion. The website says 1,593 soldiers have been injured since the war began, a day after Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth put the figure at 5,000, citing health officials.

Tensions in southern Lebanon

The Lebanese-Israeli border has also been the scene of repeated exchanges of fire between the Israeli army and the Lebanese group Hezbollah.

Israel said six of its soldiers were injured in a Hezbollah drone attack on its bases in the western Galilee.

The Israeli army heavily bombarded the outskirts of Lebanese towns near the border and destroy a house in Aytaroun.

“The Israeli public…understands that the situation in the north must change,” he said in an interview with Israel’s Channel 12.

“And that will change. If Hezbollah agrees to change things diplomatically, that’s good. Otherwise, we will have to act. We will have to make the situation in the north different. »

Doha Forum

At the same time, several Arab officials discussed the situation in Gaza during the Doha Forum conference held in Qatar.

Most notably, Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said the United States must be held accountable for giving “the greenest green light” to Israeli attacks in Gaza.

Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi warned that Israel was trying to “empty Gaza of its population.”

“Israel is defying the world, violating international law and committing war crimes,” he said.

At the conference, Qatar’s leader Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani awarded the Commissioner General of the UN humanitarian agency Unrwa, Philippe Lazzarini, with the Doha Forum Award for the agency’s work in Gaza.
