More than one million people forcefully displaced from Rafah, Overnight attacks by Israeli forces have resulted in the deaths of 22 people across Gaza.
The situation in Gaza is highly dire, with doubts are mounting over the latest truce proposal as Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, both facing potential arrest warrants from the International Criminal Court (ICC), have expressed skepticism about the US-backed proposal.
Hamas spokesperson Osama Hamdan has welcomed the truce plan but mentioned to Al Jazeera that the group has yet to receive any written documents. Jabalia and Beit Hanoon, heavily impacted by recent Israeli military operations, have been declared disaster areas.
The Gaza government has raised alarm about the dire humanitarian crisis, stating that more than 3,500 children are at risk of dying from starvation due to the continued restriction on aid delivery by Israel.
Since the escalation of conflict on October 7, at least 36,439 Palestinians have been killed and 82,627 wounded, while the death toll in Israel from Hamas’s attacks stands at least 1,139, with dozens of individuals still held captive in Gaza.
