FOREIGN NEWS: Israel-Hamas War Rages As Gaza Deaths Mount

By The Evangelist News edition, Monday, October 23, 2023.

Israel’s military ramped up its aerial offensive against Hamas as calls grow to let more aid into the besieged Gaza enclave.

More than 5,000 people have been killed in Gaza since October 7, according to Palestinian health officials.

Twenty more trucks carrying vital humanitarian aid passed the Rafah crossing from Egypt into Gaza on Monday, the UN said, while warning that the situation in the enclave’s hospitals remains “dire” and much more help is needed. One official told CNN doctors are unable to use morphine or painkillers to treat civilians due to a lack of critical medical supplies.

The US is seeking to delay an Israeli ground offensive in hopes of getting more hostages out and aid into Gaza, according to two sources briefed on discussions. However, a senior Israeli official told CNN there will be “no ceasefire.”

Israel’s defense minister said Monday the country is preparing for a “multilateral operation” on Hamas from the “air, ground, and sea.” Israel has vowed to wipe out Hamas, the Islamist group that controls Gaza, in response to the October 7 deadly terrorist attacks and kidnap rampage.
