Israel-Hamas War, Gaza in trouble
The war began on Saturday, October 7, after Hamas infiltrated southern Israel, sending fighters, firing 5,000 rockets, and taking captives, including women, children, and the elderly, which prompted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to warn of “a long and difficult war.“
Since then the Israeli forces have inflicted on the Palestinians several atrocities including cutting off their food, water and power supply. They have also bombed shelters, hospitals and escape routes out of the Gaza Strip and have cornered Palestinians in South Gaza asking them to flee the north as the US-backed army prepares for a ground invasion.

In Israel, the number of people killed in Hamas attacks reached 1,400, 302 Israeli soldiers, while more than 3,400 were injured.
