In a deeply distressing situation, Palestinian residents are grappling with a dire humanitarian crisis, as Israeli forces persist in their siege of Gaza, leading to the displacement of nearly 200,000 Palestinians from their homes. This displacement is occurring in the midst of rising casualties due to unrelenting bombardment.
In a recent development, Israeli forces formed an emergency unity government, with fighter planes targeting additional residential areas in Gaza and a substantial build-up of tanks around the occupied territory.
Former Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz, alongside current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, appeared on national television after forming a war cabinet to address the ongoing conflict with Hamas. Gantz emphasized a collective commitment to the defense of the Jewish state, transcending political divides, as the nation’s arch-rivals united their efforts to combat the continued threat posed by Hamas.
As the conflict entered its sixth day, Israel reported a death toll of 1,200 with over 2,700 people injured. In response, Hamas launched R60 rockets targeting the city of Haifa.
In Gaza, the death toll reached 1,100, with over 5,000 people, including women and children, sustaining injuries, according to Palestine’s Health Ministry. The destruction of over 500 buildings left hundreds of thousands of Palestinians homeless, seeking refuge in UN shelters.
Amid the intensifying conflict, President Joe Biden of the United States expressed continued support for Tel Aviv and dispatched Secretary of State Antony Blinken to the region.
On the 50th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War, the Palestinian organization Hamas launched a surprise attack on Israel, breaching the Gaza border and sending hundreds of fighters into occupied Palestinian or Israeli territories.
Throughout this crisis, Muslim communities around the world are expressing solidarity with the people of Gaza and urging the international community to uphold justice and international law.
