Hamas infiltrated 22 Israeli towns, army bases, a music festival (in which at least 260 people were killed), taking civilians and soldiers hostage. The following day, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared all-out war.
Dozens of buildings, refugee camps, hospitals and mosques were destroyed in the huge airstrikes. More than 1,500 people have been killed in Gaza since Israel launched the retaliatory air strikes. Residents are unable to leave, being trapped in a war zone which is experience unfathomable suffering and is expected to continue over the coming days.
Israel have ordered 1.1 million people living in northern Gaza to leave in the next day, with many civilians fleeing by cars, on the back of trucks and on foot.
We are unable to predict how the conflict will unfold in the coming days, many of the victims of the Israel-Palestine conflict are ordinary civilians in need of urgent humanitarian aid.
