Live coverage of the Israel-Hamas war: Israel vows to step up bombing of Gaza ahead of planned ground offensive; Attack on a mosque in the West Bank

The Israeli military has vowed to step up its bombardment of the besieged Gaza Strip in the next phase of the war and continue attacks on targets that could be seen as a threat to its ground forces. Israel is expected to launch a major ground offensive in the Gaza Strip to “destroy” the Palestinian militant group Hamas.

Palestinians say they have received new warnings from the Israeli army to move south from the northern Gaza Strip, Reuters reported, with another warning that if they stay where they are they will be identified as sympathizers of a “terrorist organization could be identified.

Meanwhile, the Israeli military launched an airstrike on an underground mosque complex in the occupied West Bank believed to be home to a “terror cell.”

Global humanitarian organizations have warned that humanitarian aid flowing into the Gaza Strip is “far from sufficient” and “wholly inadequate.” The UN called for “unrestricted humanitarian access to the Gaza Strip” and warned that health facilities could run out of fuel “in the coming days.”

On Sunday, Egyptian media reported that a second convoy of 17 trucks had entered the Gaza Strip, and Cindy McCain, director of the United Nations World Food Program, said another 40 trucks were expected tomorrow. On Saturday, the first convoy of 20 trucks carrying food, water, and medicine drove into the besieged Palestinian enclave for the first time since the start of the war.

The United States will deploy more military assets to the Middle East to bolster regional deterrence efforts amid growing tensions from Iran and its proxy forces in the region.» said the Defense Minister.

More than two weeks have passed since the Palestinian militant group Hamas launched an attack on Israel that killed 1,400 people and took 200 hostage. According to Palestinian authorities, more than 4,300 people have been killed and more than 13,500 injured since the war between Israel and Hamas began in Gaza.
