Israel-Hamas war live updates: ISRAEL-HAMAS WAR: Israeli–Palestinian conflict from

News TV Channel / An armed conflict between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian militant groups has been taking place chiefly in and around the Gaza Strip since 7 October 2023, when Hamas launched a surprise attack on southern Israel from the Gaza Strip. After clearing Hamas militants from its territory, the Israeli military embarked on an extensive aerial bombardment of the Gaza Strip followed by a large-scale ground invasion beginning on 27 October. Clashes have also occurred in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and with Hezbollah along the Israel–Lebanon border. The fifth war of the Gaza–Israel conflict since 2008, it is part of the broader Israeli–Palestinian conflict, and the most significant military escalation in the region since the Yom Kippur War 50 years earlier.

The Hamas attack on 7 October involved an estimated 3,000 militants breaching the Gaza–Israel barrier and attacking Israeli civilian communities and military bases. During this attack, 1,139 Israelis and foreign nationals including 766 civilians and 373 security personnel were killed, while 253 Israelis and foreigners were taken captive to the Gaza Strip. Hamas said its attack was in response to the continued Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories, the blockade of the Gaza Strip, the expansion of illegal Israeli settlements, the alleged “Judaization” of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the plight of Palestinian refugees and prisoners. In response, Israel declared a state of war, tightened its blockade and launched one of the most severe bombing campaigns in modern history, before commencing the ground invasion on 27 October. Israeli forces laid siege to Gaza City on 2 November and moved south to attack Khan Yunis a month later on 3 December; both sieges remain ongoing. Israel’s next stated objective is the capture of Rafah. According to Israeli officials, Israeli forces killed an estimated 6,000–13,000 Palestinian militants during the conflict while Israel has lost over 200 soldiers.


A humanitarian crisis has developed in the Gaza Strip, with healthcare in a state of collapse, shortages of food, clean water, medicine and fuel due to the blockade, electricity and communications blackouts, and famine conditions. More than 30,000 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza during the conflict, including over 12,300 children and 8,400 women. Several thousand more are missing and presumed trapped under rubble. Nearly all of Gaza’s 2.3 million population have been internally displaced. A United Nations resolution calling for a humanitarian pause passed on 15 November. By the end of the month, a seven-day truce commenced, following which fighting resumed. One notable incident on 29 February 2024, termed the “flour massacre”, led to the deaths of more than 100 Palestinians after Israeli troops opened fire when huge crowds raced to pull goods off an aid convoy.


The war has had significant international repercussions. Protests that primarily call for a ceasefire have occurred across the world. Israel’s actions have been denounced in the Islamic world and much of the Global South. South Africa launched proceedings at the International Court of Justice alleging that Israel is committing genocide in Gaza. Israel has received significant support from its traditional Western allies, especially the United States, which vetoed multiple UN Security Council resolutions calling for an immediate ceasefire. Iran-backed militias have attacked American military bases in the Middle East, while the Yemeni Houthi movement attacked commercial ships they alleged were linked to Israel, incurring a military response from a number of countries led by the United States. Houthis have stated they will not stop until Israel ends its operations in Gaza and aid is allowed in.
