In the ongoing updates regarding the Israel-Hamas conflict, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a stern warning of complete eradication for all Hamas members while Israel continued its airstrikes in response to the weekend’s assault by Hamas. Netanyahu, in a move of national unity, partnered with opposition leader Benny Gantz to establish an emergency unity government and a war Cabinet tasked with overseeing the campaign against Hamas militants. This new coalition comprises Netanyahu, Gantz, the current Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, and two other high-ranking officials acting as “observer” members. During the conflict, this government will exclusively focus on war-related matters, refraining from passing any legislation or decisions unrelated to the ongoing crisis. The devastating war has claimed a staggering toll of at least 2,300 lives.
In contrast, the Gaza Strip faces an acute humanitarian crisis as its sole power plant ran out of fuel, forcing a shutdown and leaving the majority of its 2.3 million residents without electricity. Israel’s blockade has further exacerbated the situation, as it has halted the flow of essential supplies such as food, water, fuel, and medicine into the 40-kilometer-long territory wedged between Israel, Egypt, and the Mediterranean Sea.
On the international front, United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken is en route to Israel and is scheduled to hold discussions with senior Israeli officials, including Netanyahu, with the aim of increasing military support. Blinken emphasized, “I carry a straightforward and unwavering message that the United States stands firmly behind Israel.” Simultaneously, India has initiated “Operation Ajay” to repatriate its citizens from both Israel and Palestine, commencing today. The Indian government plans to charter special flights for their citizens’ return, with the Indian Navy prepared to provide assistance if necessary.
