Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Israeli Military Escalates Offensive in Crowded Southern Gaza, Causing Increase in Death Toll Despite Evacuation Orders

Khan Younis, Gaza Strip – The Israeli military has intensified its attacks on targets in southern Gaza, despite evacuation orders being issued to affected neighborhoods. This ongoing offensive has resulted in a surge in the death toll, with over 200 Palestinians killed since the resumption of fighting on Friday, following a weeklong truce with Hamas, the ruling group in Gaza. The Gaza Health Ministry has reported that the overall death toll from the Gaza war has now surpassed 15,000. The United States has urged Israel to take greater measures to protect Palestinian civilians. However, the prospects for further cease-fires remain dim, as Israel has recalled its negotiators, and the Hamas deputy leader stated that any future prisoner exchange would only occur as part of a comprehensive resolution to end the war. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reiterated Israel’s commitment to continue the conflict until all its objectives are achieved.
