Israel-Palestine War Death Toll (News21USA): In this ongoing Israel-Hamas war, the death toll has now reached 3,200, with Israeli casualties exceeding 1,300 and over 1,900 Palestinian casualties reported by Gaza authorities. The situation remains dire, prompting tens of thousands to evacuate southern Gaza following a 24-hour notice from Israel. The Israeli military has conducted temporary raids in Gaza to combat militants, although this hasn’t signified a ground invasion.
Amid the crisis, there have been demonstrations across the Middle East, including Jordan and Bahrain, as thousands express solidarity. The Palestinian UN envoy calls on Secretary-General Guterres to take decisive action, characterizing this as a «crime against humanity.»
Despite appeals for safe passage, neighboring Arab nations have rejected the request. The US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, discusses the creation of secure zones in Gaza to aid civilian relocation. The first US State Department-organized charter flight to evacuate Americans from Israel has landed in Athens. President Biden has declared the Gaza humanitarian crisis a priority while focusing on the safe return of Americans held captive by Hamas.
