Permalink Israel ‘expanding’ operations in Gaza – IDF

A massive wave of airstrikes was carried out ahead of a ground incursion | Israeli ground forces will “expand” their activity in Gaza on Friday night, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari has told reporters. Warplanes are currently subjecting the enclave to some of the heaviest bombardment to date ahead of the ground operation. [...] Israeli soldiers have conducted several limited raids into the strip over the last two days but no major offensive has been announced. Hagari’s statement is the clearest sign since the beginning of the conflict on October 7 that an invasion – which the IDF has been preparing to launch for almost three weeks – is imminent.  In a statement on Friday morning, the IDF said that its tanks and infantry had moved into central Gaza the previous day and destroyed “dozens of terrorist targets, including positions for launching anti-tank missiles and operational headquarters,” as well as Hamas fighters. Israeli forces withdrew after the raid with no casualties, the IDF added.

Permalink Western countries oppose cease-fire in Gaza as humanitarian crisis unfolds

More than 7,000 people, most of them women and children, have been killed in Israel's attacks on Gaza as calls for a cease-fire are either blocked or ignored by Western countries. | Anadolu correspondents compiled the reactions of many countries to Israel's ongoing attacks on the Palestinian enclave. While answering reporters' questions during a speech at the White House, US President Joe Biden said they could discuss a cease-fire in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict after all the hostages held by the Palestinian group Hamas were released.  A draft resolution submitted by the US to the UN Security Council on Oct. 25 which was later vetoed said that while "the terrorist attacks carried out by Hamas on Oct. 7 are strongly condemned," countries have the right to self-defense. It pointed out the necessity of a humanitarian pause in hostilities instead of a cease-fire but noted that sustainable aid should be provided to Gaza.  Draft resolutions submitted by Russia to the Security Council on Oct. 16 and 25 on the immediate declaration of a humanitarian cease-fire in Gaza were vetoed by the US.
