Israel Extends Ground Operations in Gaza
The Israeli army has announced that it is extending its ground operations in Gaza. This comes amid reports of the most intense airstrikes on northern Gaza since the war began. There have also been reports of Israeli tank activity inside the Gaza Strip.

Escalation of Conflict
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have stated that ground forces are “expanding their activity” in the Gaza Strip. This move brings the army closer to a full-on ground invasion of the besieged territory. Army spokesperson Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari has said that aerial attacks have targeted Hamas tunnels, amid reports of heavy bombing where internet and mobile phone services were cut off.

The Humanitarian Crisis
The escalation of conflict has led to a growing humanitarian crisis. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) chief, Philippe Lazzarini, warned at a news conference on Friday that basic services in Gaza are “crumbling”, with medicine, food and water running out. He said: “As we speak, people in Gaza are dying. They are dying not only from bombs and strikes. Soon, many more will die from the consequences of siege imposed on the Gaza Strip”.

Looking Ahead
The Israeli military’s plans for a full-scale ground operation hang in the balance, suspended in a tense interlude of reassessment and recalibration. The pivot is primarily driven by concerns over potential deadly traps. As the situation continues to evolve, the international community watches with bated breath, hoping for a swift resolution to prevent further loss of life.

In these trying times, it is crucial for all parties involved to prioritize the safety and well-being of civilians. The international community must continue to push for peace and dialogue as the only viable solution to this ongoing conflict.
