Occupied Jerusalem: Following Hamas’ attacks, Israel has issued a warning of imposing a complete siege on Gaza, which includes the threat of cutting off all basic necessities, including electricity, food, water, and gas.
Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant stated in his address that the order for a complete siege on Gaza has been issued, and Israeli forces are conducting aerial strikes on Palestinian territories. He emphasized that during the siege, the supply of electricity, food, water, and gas would be halted.
According to international news agencies, Israel continues to bombard Palestinian territories. Throughout the day, rockets rained down on Gaza, exacerbating the situation. In addition to clashes between resistance fighters and Israeli forces in the western border areas, reports of Israeli shelling are also emerging.
Local media reports indicate that Israeli aircraft targeted two mosques in Gaza. On the other hand, the Israeli military claims to have targeted more than 100 objectives in Gaza. They have also deployed armored vehicles and drones along the border areas to prevent Palestinians from entering Israeli-controlled territories.
It is worth noting that as a result of Israel’s bombings on Gaza, more than 500 people, including children and women, have been killed, and thousands have been injured so far. According to a United Nations report, as a result of Israeli attacks, over 123,000 people have been forced to become homeless.
