Gaza-Israel: The Carnage Continues

The war between Israel and the militant Palestinian group Hamas raged for a fifth day on Wednesday, October 11, 2023, as Israeli warplanes hammered neighbourhood after neighbourhood in the Gaza Strip, reducing buildings to rubble and sending people scrambling to find safety.

Israel Defence Forces Spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus said on Wednesday that 1,200 Israelis were killed and more than 2,700 wounded.

About 300,000 IDF soldiers have been deployed at the Gaza border, Colonel Conricus said, and they would ensure that Hamas will not have any military capabilities at the end of the war.

Israel has stopped the entry of food, fuel and medicines into Gaza in response to Hamas’ bloody incursion into Israel on Saturday, October 7, 2023.

The sole remaining access from Egypt shut down on Tuesday after airstrikes hit the border crossing.

As Israeli airstrikes continued nonstop in the Karama district north of Gaza city, many dead and injured are stuck under rubble that Gaza lacks the equipment to handle, officials said on Wednesday.

With streets badly damaged and the ongoing and intense nature of the airstrikes, ambulances and civil defence teams are unable to approach areas where people were reported trapped under crumbled infrastructure.

Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant on Tuesday said the IDF is moving to ‘full offence’ against Hamas.
