As the war between Israel and Hamas reaches 43 days, at least 12 people, including wounded and medical personnel, died today in direct attacks by the Israeli Army on the Indonesian Hospital, located near Jabaliain the northern Gaza Strip, according to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Health Ministry.
The attack on the Indonesian Hospital “with tank artillery”, causing numerous injuries, occurs when both parties in the fray are getting closer than ever to a humanitarian truce and the release of several dozen of the 239 kidnapped in the hands of the Islamist group, according to reports Sal Emergui.
Until now, Hamas has freed four hostages, Israel rescued one and the bodies of two have been found near Al Shifa since the Islamist group took more than 240 hostages in the October 7 attack on Israeli territory.
Yemen’s Houthi rebels have seized an Israeli-linked cargo ship on a major shipping route in the Red Sea, and took its 25 crew members hostage, and warned that “this is the beginning.” The group warned that it will continue attacking vessels in international waters that were linked to or owned by Israel until Israel’s campaign against Hamas ends. Iran denies its involvement in the ship’s hijacking.
In the October 7 attack on Israel, 1,200 people died and another 240 were taken hostage, the vast majority civilians. In total, 13,000 people have been killed in Israeli bombings in Gaza, including more than 5,500 children, according to the Islamist movement.
