Israel Hamas War : Hamas Says At Least 80 Killed In Overnight Israeli Strikes

Read Time:3 Minute, 25 Second

The Hamas health ministry said at least 50 people were killed Tuesday in a single hour of increased Israeli strikes on the Gaza Strip. This was after the Palestinian health ministry, on Tuesday said that Israeli air strikes had killed more than 700 Palestinians in Hamas-run Gaza overnight reporting the highest 24-hour death toll.

Hamas on Wednesday said that Israeli strikes killed at least 80 people in Gaza overnight.  A statement from Gaza government’s media office said, “More than 80 people were martyred and hundreds wounded in massacres committed by the occupation (Israel) raids” overnight.

The death toll in Gaza has breached the 5,000 mark, as Israel continues pounding the Hamas-controlled territory with full force. Amongst the dead are mostly civilians.

UN Agency UNRWA said that efforts to provide Gaza with humanitarian assistance might face hurdles in the face of a growing shortage of fuel supplies in the enclave. Gaza Strip has been enduring Israeli air strikes and a near-total land, sea, and air blockade of the Palestinian territory for over two weeks now, since Hamas decided to launch terrorist attacks in Israel on Oct 7.

A call recording released by IDF captured a Hamas terrorist allegedly bragging to his parents about killing 10 Jews with his “own hands.” The terrorist even sent the photos of his victims to his parents.

The incident took place shortly after the Oct 7 assault by Hamas on Israeli soil.

The terrorist, whose identity remains undisclosed, allegedly snatched the phone from a hostage and dialled his parents.

“Look how many I killed with my own hands! Your son killed Jews!” He emphasizes his actions by repeating, “I killed 10 with my own hands! Dad, 10 with my own hands!,” he can be heard saying in the audio recording.

Before launching a ground invasion of Gaza Strip, Israel might first consider flooding Hamas tunnels where hostages could also be held, reported Pulitzer Prize-winning American journalist Seymour Hersh.

“Israel is now in the process of turning Gaza City into rubble, via constant bombing, and is also planning to begin a ground invasion in the near future,” the journalist said.

“Such an act could mean that Israel was prepared to write off the hostages still in jeopardy,” Hersh added.

While expressing its deep concerns over the Israel-Hamas war, India at the UN Security Council meeting on Wednesday (Oct 25) vowed its continued support for the people of Palestine. This came as the UNSC held its first open debate on the Israel-Hamas war, a meeting where a majority of the members urged for an immediate ceasefire and humanitarian aid for Palestinians.

Until now, the 15-member council has failed to deliver a resolution amid air raids and relentless violence which has raised concerns of a further escalation.

India’s Deputy Permanent Representative (DPR) to the United Nations, Ambassador R. Ravindra said that India is “deeply concerned about the deteriorating security situation and large-scale loss of civilian lives in the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.”

“In these challenging times, India will continue to send humanitarian assistance to the people of Palestine…Every effort must be made to create conducive conditions for the resumption of these talks,” the Ambassador said.

Terming the October 7 Hamas attack as “shocking,” India at the UNSC condemned it “unequivocally.”

The UN representative for India said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was “one of the first global leaders to have conveyed his condolences for the loss of lives and prayers for the innocent victims and their families.”

“We stood in solidarity with Israel at their moment of crisis when they were facing these terror attacks…Our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and prayers for the speedy recovery of the injured. Civilian casualties in the ongoing conflict are a matter of serious and continuing concern,” he said.

After the unspeakable onslaught by Hamas, many Palestinians had to bear the brunt of the ensuing war. In the midst of the humanitarian crisis triggered by the unprecedented situation in the region, India stepped in to aid the Palestinians in their plight.
