No Water & No Electricity until all Hostages are Freed: Israeli Minister

After the Red Cross pleaded for fuel to be allowed in to prevent overburdened hospitals from “turning into mortuaries,” Israel declared on Thursday that there would be no humanitarian relief in its embargo of the Gaza Strip until all of its hostages were freed.

According to Hamas media, the most recent Israeli Air strikes killed 15 Palestinians and injured several others.

In retaliation for the bloodiest attack on Jews since the Holocaust, in which hundreds of gunmen stormed into Israeli cities on Saturday, Israel has pledged to completely destroy the Hamas movement that controls the Gaza Strip.

Israel Katz, the nation’s energy minister, stated that if Israeli hostages were not released, there would be no exemption to the blockade.

At least 1,200 people were killed by Hamas fighters, the majority of whom were civilians who were shot dead in their houses or on the streets, while numerous hostages were taken back to Gaza.

After regaining control of communities, Israeli soldiers discovered homes strewn with bodies, including those of women who had been raped and slain as well as children who had been shot and burned. This revealed the scope of the killings.

In response, Israel has so far completely besieged the enclave, which is home to 2.3 million people, and launched the most intense bombing assault in the 75-year history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, obliterating entire districts.

According to Gazan authorities, the bombing left more than 1,200 people dead and more than 5,000 others injured. The hospital generators’ fuel supply is running low due to the shut-down of the only electric power plant.

Fabrizio Carboni, regional director of the International Committee of the Red Cross, issued a statement on Thursday saying, “The human misery caused by this escalation is abhorrent, and I beg both parties to ease human suffering.”

“As Gaza loses power, hospitals also lose power, putting elderly people who rely on oxygen and infants in incubators in risk. X-rays cannot be obtained, and kidney dialysis is stopped. Without power, hospitals run the risk of becoming mortuaries.

On Wednesday, Israel established a new unity government, including Benjamin Netanyahu’s detractors in the cabinet.

In preparation for what could be a ground invasion on Gaza, it has called up hundreds of thousands of reservists. Although the decision to invade has not yet been made, military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Richard Hecht said early on Thursday that “we are preparing for it.”

According to Hecht, the recent overnight attacks targeted the “Nukhba Force” of Hamas, which was in charge of the attacks on Saturday. According to Hecht, Palestinian gunmen were still attempting to enter Israel through the water, and the military was still working to fortify the Gaza line.

According to Hamas media, the most recent Israeli airstrikes killed 15 Palestinians and injured several others. Israeli planes were seen severely bombing Gaza City, according to witnesses, while the Jabalia refugee camp in northern Gaza was also the target of an airstrike, according to Gazan authorities.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken arrived in Israel on Thursday as part of a regional visit to show support for Israel and work to stop the expansion of the conflict. He’ll go to Jordan as well.

Blinken will meet Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority, on Friday, according to Hussein Al-Sheikh, the secretary general of the executive committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, who spoke on X.
