US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken is scheduled to arrive in the region as Israel continues with its attempt to expand the war fronts beyond Gaza. 

Despite the killing of a top Hamas leader in Lebanon, the Resistance on both fronts, Gaza and South Lebanon remains strong, pushing back against Israeli military advances. 

Hundreds more Palestinians were killed and wounded in ongoing Israeli strikes and shelling of the central regions of the Gaza Strip.

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 22,313 Palestinians have been killed, and 57,296 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.
