Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Israeli forces continue to bombard the southern Gaza Strip, causing significant casualties among Palestinians. Despite calls from the United States and the United Nations to protect civilians, the Israeli military has pressed ahead with its air and ground attacks. The US has stated that it is too soon to determine whether Israel is doing enough to protect civilians, but it expects Israel to refrain from striking areas that have been designated as safe zones.

However, reports from residents and journalists on the ground have indicated that Israeli airstrikes have targeted areas where people were instructed to seek shelter. This has raised concerns about the safety of civilians and the effectiveness of Israel’s warnings.

The United Nations Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, has appealed to Israel to avoid actions that would worsen the already dire humanitarian situation in Gaza. He has called on Israel to spare civilians from further suffering, stating that there is nowhere safe for people to go in the face of the intense bombardment.

Israel has expanded its ground invasion of Gaza, capturing the northern half of the region and pushing deep into the southern half. Fierce clashes have erupted between Israeli soldiers and fighters from Hamas ally Islamic Jihad. Israeli tanks have also cut off the main north-south route in Gaza, making it difficult for residents to flee the violence.

The Israeli military reported that three of its soldiers were killed in combat on Monday, bringing the total number of Israeli soldier deaths in Gaza to 78 since the start of the ground invasion. In retaliation for a cross-border attack by Hamas gunmen in October, Israel launched its assault to wipe out Hamas. According to Israeli tallies, the attack resulted in the death of 1,200 people and the seizure of 240 hostages.

The Gaza Health Ministry, which is run by Hamas, has reported that at least 15,899 Palestinians, including a significant number of women and children, have been killed during the eight weeks of warfare. The director general of the World Health Organization has called on Israel to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure, including hospitals.

The situation in Gaza remains dire, with thousands of people displaced and limited supplies hampering humanitarian efforts. Calls for the protection of civilians and an end to the violence continue to be made, but the conflict shows no signs of abating.
