Israeli troops encircle Gaza City from north to south
Gaza City is in ruins and it is difficult for people to leave the city
Headquarters reporter Zhao Bing: So far, Israeli ground forces continue to advance toward Gaza City in northern Gaza under the cover of the air force and navy. According to the latest statement from the Israeli military,It has basically ended the main fighting in the suburbs around Gaza City and has encircled Gaza City from the north to the south. However, according to my observations from the front and the relevant information released by the Israeli army, the Israeli army has not launched a large-scale ground offensive against Gaza City for the time being. Its current focus on the ground battle is to continue to conduct strategic inspections and inspections of the areas surrounding Gaza City. The occupation includes operations in the Jabaliya area in northern Gaza City, where there are many high-rise residential buildings. The Israeli army still needs to conduct intelligence collection, tactical clearance, etc.; on the other hand, the Israeli army’s engineering troops are constantly locating Hamas’s underground tunnels and demolish them and blow them up.
The main station reporter currently in Gaza City told me that the area is still suffering from continuous and violent air strikes by the Israeli army. Their movements and network signals have been seriously affected. They can only hide in a temporary residence near Shifa Hospital. They barely used the small amount of electricity collected by the solar panels during the day and relied on some of the food they had stored previously. Due to the siege of Gaza City by the Israeli army and the interruption of fuel supplies, as well as the ruins and damaged roads scattered throughout the city,They have no way to escape from Gaza City. This is almost the current situation of the people in Gaza City.
On the 3rd local time, in northern Israel, after receiving multiple anti-tank missile attacks from the direction of Lebanon, the Israeli army continued to use artillery and fighter planes to attack multiple targets such as the anti-tank missile launching positions of the Lebanese Hezbollah armed forces. At the same time, in response to the latest speech by Lebanese Hezbollah leader Nasrallah,Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warned on the 3rd that if the Lebanese Hezbollah armed forces launch a large-scale attack on Israel, they will pay an unimaginable huge price.
According to the Palestinian News Agency “Wafa”, on the evening of the 4th local time, the Israeli army air raided the Maghazi refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip. The death toll has now risen to 51 people, and dozens of others were injured.Most of the casualties were women and children.
According to reports, Israeli warplanes launched intensive attacks on residential areas in the western and northern Gaza Strip and dropped white phosphorus bombs. The Israeli military also conducted at least 15 air strikes near Indonesian hospitals in the northern Gaza Strip. In addition, Israeli warplanes also carried out air strikes on the Jebaliya refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip, killing seven people and injuring dozens more.
The humanitarian crisis is getting worse
Gaza children forced to drink water that donkeys wouldn’t normally drink
Since the outbreak of a new round of large-scale conflict between Palestine and Israel, Israel has imposed a comprehensive blockade on the Gaza Strip, resulting in extreme shortages of water, food, fuel and medicine.In Khan Younis in southern Gaza, people can only drink untreated salty seawater. “Normally, it is not enough for donkeys to drink, but now children are forced to drink it too.”
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society stated on the 4th local time that it received 30 trucks carrying aid supplies through the Rafah Port that day. Three of them were handed over to the International Committee of the Red Cross and 19 to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in the East. In addition, eight trucks from the Egyptian Red Crescent Society were delivered to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society.
It is reported that 4 of the 30 trucks contain medical supplies and medicines, while the remaining trucks contain food, water and rescue items.
