The Israeli-Hamas Conflict During the 8th Month of the War: Israeli-Middle East Palestinians Driven Through a Rafah Crossing

A few dozen trucks have also been entering Gaza daily through a U.S.-built floating pier, but its capacity remains far below the 150 trucks a day that officials had hoped for. In order to meet the needs of humanitarians, the territory needs at least 600 trucks a day.

The Gaza side of the Rafah crossing must be handed back to Palestinians before it can reopen. It agreed to temporarily divert traffic through Israel’s Kerem Shalom crossing, Gaza’s main cargo terminal, after a call between U.S. President Joe Biden and Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.

The war between Israel and Hamas, now in its eighth month, has killed nearly 36,000 Palestinians, according to local health officials. The United Nations says 80% of the population has left their homes and many of them are experiencing famine.

Hamas claimed to have captured an Israeli soldier during the fighting in northern Gaza, as well as releasing video of a wounded man being dragged through a tunnel. The Israeli military denied any of its soldiers had been captured, and Hamas did not provide any other evidence to substantiate its claim.

Israel refuses to deny civilians in the Gaza Strip, but the Israeli military has ordered an end to the Gaza war. Israeli protests in Tel Aviv on Saturday

A strip of dock near Ashdod was damaged by the weather on Saturday. Two of the vessels were affected by rough seas and anchored near the pier off the Gaza coast, while two were in Israel.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said Israel must take over Rafah in order to eliminate Hamas’ last remaining battalions and achieve its goal of “total victory” over the militants, who have recently regrouped in other parts of Gaza where the military had already operated.

Netanyahu faces growing pressure from the Israeli public to make a deal with Hamas to free the remaining hostages, something Hamas has refused to do without guarantees for an end to the war and the full withdrawal of Israeli troops. Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders have ruled that out.

Scuffles broke out between Israeli police and protesters in Tel Aviv on Saturday after thousands gathered to demonstrate against the government and demand the return of the hostages. The protesters called for Netanyahu’s resignation and demanded new elections.

Last week, three European countries announced they would recognize a Palestinian state, and the chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court requested arrest warrants for Netanyahu and Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, along with three Hamas leaders.

The Israeli military launched a strike after the International Court of Justice ordered it to end its operation in the area. There was an order related to one of the measures that South Africa added to its case against Israel, accusing it of genocide. It also ordered Israel to open its border with Egypt to let aid in and allow a U.N. fact finding mission to enter to investigate accusations of war crimes.

Israel is unlikely to comply with the orders and condemns the move to put the leaders of the country on trial. Israel says it makes every effort to avoid harming civilians and blames their deaths on Hamas because the militants operate in dense, residential areas.

There are many complex incidents in a war of such scope and intensity, according to General Tomer-Yerushalmi. The incident in Rafah last night is very serious. She added that the military “regrets any harm to uninvolved civilians during the war.”

The air strike is under review, according to Maj. Gen. Yifat Tomer-Yerushalmi. She said the military police had opened around 70 criminal investigations into potential misconduct during the war.

Dr. James Smith, a Medical Emergency Physician, and the Soldiers in Rafah: The Israeli Air Strike Induced by the Red Crescent

“These are very, very tightly packed tents,” he said. “And a fire like this could spread over a huge distance with catastrophic consequences in a very, very short space of time.”

The United Nations estimates that more than 800,000 people fled the area in a matter of weeks after the Israeli military began their offensive.

The trauma center was too far away from a house that Dr. Smith said had become too dangerous to cross.

Dr. James Smith, an emergency doctor who is working just outside Rafah, said that the injured were taken to a trauma stabilization center in Tal al-Sultan and then referred to surrounding field hospitals for further treatment. Many hospitals in Rafah and neighboring cities were ordered to be evacuated and shut down by the Israeli military in the past months.

More than 15 dead people and dozens of wounded in the Rafah strike have been brought to the trauma stabilization center in Tal as Sultan by Doctors Without Borders.

Mr. al-Sapti said that at the scene of the strike he saw charred bodies and people screaming as firefighters tried to put out the flames. “The fire was very strong and was all over the camp,” he said. “There was darkness and no electricity.”

Bilal al-Sapti, 30, a construction worker in Rafah, said that shrapnel from the strike tore up the tent where he was staying with his wife and two children, but that his family was uninjured.

The strike hit the Tal as Sultan area of Rafah, within what the Israeli military has designated as a humanitarian zone, where it had told Palestinian civilians to go for shelter ahead of its ground offensive in Rafah, the Red Crescent said.

The Gaza health ministry said that 35 Palestinians were killed in a Sunday air strike in the Rafah area. It said that most of the people who were killed were women and children.
