The ‘harshest day’ for the Israeli army in Gaza worsened when four more officers were killed, to be added to 9 others declared dead hours earlier. 

Israel’s political crisis deepened with the resignation of an Israeli minister and the growing rift between politicians and the military. 

Hundreds of Gazans were killed or wounded in ongoing Israeli strikes and shelling of Gaza, while the Palestinian Resistance continued to fight back at all fronts.

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 23,084 Palestinians have been killed, and 58,926 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7. Palestinian and international estimates say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

  1. Blinken is either: a total sociopath, or the most ignorant Secretary of State America’s ever had. he’s cold, numb, unaffected. perfect for his position. Remember Killary???
    Or, is he bristling with anticipation of the moment he finally says, ” ok, enough! ” and literally subdues Biden on the spot.
