Israel is expected to launch a ground offensive against Hamas, prompting a mass exodus of Palestinians to the south, amid United Nations concerns that Gaza could become its worst humanitarian crisis yet. Crowded and enclosed area. As of yesterday morning, our local time, Israel announced that “local inspections” in the Gaza Strip were a sign that the ground offensive had begun.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has announced that it has launched a limited offensive by Israeli infantry and tanks against Gaza.The IDF spokesman said the strike was aimed at hitting Hamas rocket units, please note. Where is Hamas holding hostages after the armed group attacked Israel on Saturday?
Israel’s military said it was the first time its own ground forces had launched operations in the besieged Gaza Strip. And it is seen as a signal for the start of a ground offensive against Hamas, as predicted after Israel vowed to completely destroy Hamas.
As can be seen here, the explosion produced several loud explosions and a plume of smoke. local time (Oct. 14) in the early morning and late morning hours above the sky in the Gaza Strip
This happened shortly after Israel announced that the offensive had begun. Hamas’s communications office said 70 people were killed in an Israeli airstrike targeting people fleeing southern Gaza.
Meanwhile, Hamas’ attacks continued. Seen here is a picture of European Commission President Ursula van der Leyen, who visited Israel yesterday, taking shelter after a rocket warning siren sounded in Tel Aviv, Israel yesterday afternoon.
Israel’s military said it intercepted a rocket fired from Gaza by Hamas targeting northern Israel. The attack was carried out by Hamas in response to Israel’s order to evacuate Gazans. Besides Tel Aviv, warning sirens sounded in nearby cities.
Israel has scattered leaflets over Gaza since yesterday. It ordered more than 1 million people living in the northern Gaza Strip to leave the south within 24 hours for safety. It is thought to be an evacuation order before an Israeli attack on the ground. As a result, many Palestinians packed their belongings and fled south, despite calls by Hamas for civilians not to leave, following Israeli orders.
The picture shown here is the exodus of the Palestinians. You can see cars and trucks full of belongings being evacuated and crowds of people. The dispossessed Palestinians said in agony that they were forced to migrate as their forefathers did.
Israel has completely blockaded Gaza on all sides since Monday before the evacuation order was issued. Water cut, power cut and food distribution banned. Medical supplies enter the area to pressure Hamas, which attacked Israel on Saturday, October 7.
In a document sent by the IDF to the United Nations, Israel wants Palestinians living near Israel in the northern Gaza Strip to move south, near the small marshland of Wadi Gaza. The river that divides the north-south Gaza Strip flows through it, and evacuation orders have been issued for the safety of civilians.
However, Israel strongly condemned the order to evacuate more than 1 million people from the Gaza Strip within 24 hours at the United Nations. Aid agencies and human rights organizations say it is impossible and illegal.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has pointed out that the situation in Gaza has reached a new and very dangerous low. He pointed to Israel’s order to move more than 1 million people south of the densely populated war zone to another area without water. Getting food or shelter is impossible and extremely dangerous with the entire Gaza Strip under siege. Meanwhile, Gaza’s health system is in danger of collapsing.
The United Nations Secretary-General also said that he continues to work with leaders in the Middle East region to find ways to alleviate the suffering faced by the people of the Gaza Strip. Opening the way for aid delivery is the urgent thing to do now, he stressed. Both fuel, food and water have flown into Gaza with demands to stop counter-attacks. All parties must also ensure respect for international humanitarian law and human rights law. That the public should be protected

Reuters news agency reported that several people were injured or killed in the attack. But the clear numbers are yet to be confirmed.
However, a video clip from Reuters shows medics taking several injured people to a hospital in the southern Gaza Strip for treatment. Among the injured were children.
A wounded Palestinian was taken from a truck parked outside the hospital yesterday. A Reuters report said it could not confirm where the scene seen in the clip took place. But it said there were injuries in a convoy of people leaving Gaza. The city was attacked
More than 1,300 people were killed and 3,418 wounded in a Hamas attack on Israel last Saturday, the IDF said, with more than 120 civilians being held hostage by Hamas in Gaza.
Israel launches airstrikes in Gaza in response to Hamas. As a result, at least 2,215 Palestinians have been killed and more than 8,714 injured.
Although the United Nations and many human rights organizations have condemned Hamas’ attacks on Israeli civilians, he has at the same time criticized Israel’s response. In particular, the order for the temporary evacuation of more than 1 million people from the southern Gaza Strip. The result has raised concerns of a humanitarian catastrophe. Why this concern?
If we look back at the total area of the Gaza Strip, which is approximately 360 square kilometers, we can see that it is very small compared to the total number of Palestinians of more than 2.3 million. And let’s not forget that the Gaza Strip is completely besieged by Israel.
The entire Gaza Strip has been left without food, water, electricity and public health infrastructure as nearly half of the population has been forcibly displaced to the south. This means forcing Palestinians in the Gaza Strip to face increasingly dangerous and overcrowded living conditions due to lack of basic necessities.
The International Committee of the Red Cross said in a statement that Hamas’s attacks on Israel cannot justify the unlimited destruction of the Gaza Strip, and that demands for the evacuation of civilians from northern Gaza violate international law.
Egypt, Israel’s southern neighbor, is the only way to evacuate civilians from the besieged Gaza Strip through its border with southern Gaza. But wary of political and security implications. Egyptian authorities have confirmed that citizens from Gaza have not been allowed to cross the border into Egypt for the past week. But it said it would allow aid to be sent.
The US, Israel’s main ally, is another country to watch for its role in this round of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Yesterday, October 13, President Joe Biden confirmed that the humanitarian crisis in Gaza is urgent. But at the same time, the US government has confirmed that it is ready to send military aid to Israel as well.
President Biden said most Palestinians are not affiliated with Hamas. As well as shocking attacks by Hamas. And these Palestinians are also facing hardships. Now the US working group is consulting with various governments in the Middle East. In the region regarding the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
However, Biden confirmed that the US would stand with Israel against the threat from Hamas, which US leaders called “pure evil”.
This position of the US government is clearly reflected in the visits of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Secretary of State Anthony Blinken to the Middle East.
Blinken continues to seek cooperation from Arab world leaders. Including Qatar in condemning the violence of the Hamas group. Discuss with Israel that every effort must be made to avoid endangering civilians, even if the United States is prepared to say so. But he insists that no country can tolerate a terrorist group massacring its own people, as Hamas has done. What Israel is doing now is not retaliatory. But it is about protecting your own people.
In a joint statement with Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant in Tel Aviv yesterday, US Defense Secretary Austin said Israeli weapons and other resources are now available. Shipped quickly from USA. Come support Israel “Defend Yourself”, America is ready to send additional military aid to Israel if needed.
The AP news agency quoted a senior US defense official as saying. In addition to the carrier strike force deployed to the Mediterranean, the US has also supplied Israel with small-diameter missiles and interceptor missiles for the Iron Dome air defense system. More will deliver
And Lloyd Austin refused to confirm that the US was sending spy planes into the region? But the United States has supported providing intelligence and other planning assistance to Israel, including handling the AP hostage situation.
Recently, there was an announcement from the Israeli army to extend the evacuation period, which will open the road to the southward migration of civilians back into the ‘Gaza area’ between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm (local time). 6 hours, or 2:00pm – 8:00pm (our local time) through 2 roads, Al-Bahr and Salah Al-Din, the public can safely exit through these 2 routes.
