Israeli tanks and aircraft intensify their attacks in Gaza

  • Israeli tanks and aircraft have increased their attacks in the southern part of Gaza.
  • An Israeli official stated on Monday that the military will withdraw its forces from Gaza this month.
  • Washington has been pressuring Israel to scale back the severity of its military campaign.

Israeli tanks and aircraft have increased their attacks in the southern part of Gaza, indicating a gradual transition to less intense operations in the northern part of the Palestinian territory. A humanitarian catastrophe has befallen Gaza’s 2.3 million inhabitants as a result of the conflict, which has left most of the region in ruins and claimed thousands of lives.

An Israeli official stated on Monday that the military will withdraw its forces from Gaza this month and begin a more limited period of “mopping up” operations that will last for several months.

Reducing the number of troops would enable some reservists to resume their civilian lives, supporting Israel’s economy damaged by the war and freeing up units in the event of a larger battle with Iran-backed Hezbollah in Lebanon.

According to a US official, the move seemed to signal the beginning of a transition to less intensive operations in the northern part of the Palestinian territory. In the face of growing international calls for a ceasefire, as the death toll rises, Washington has been pressuring Israel to scale back the severity of its military campaign.

Nonetheless, locals reported that Israeli tanks and aircraft intensified their assault on Khan Younis’s northern and eastern regions in southern Gaza.

The US Navy’s announcement that the Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier, which had been sent to the Eastern Mediterranean when hostilities broke out, was making its way back to its home port in Virginia coincided with the indications of a slowdown in the situation in northern Gaza.

Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen, who supported Hamas, launched strikes on the vital trade route just as Iran’s warship, the Alborz, was entering the Red Sea. Since the beginning of the Gaza battle, Hezbollah and Israel have been exchanging artillery fire, and on Monday, the Israeli military claimed to have launched an airstrike.

Israel claims that 1,200 people were murdered in a surprise Hamas onslaught on Israeli cities on October 7, which set off the Gaza War. Over 21,978 individuals have been murdered by Israel’s offensive in Gaza, which is controlled by Hamas, according to Palestinian health authorities.

Regaining control of Gaza’s border with Egypt is imperative, according to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who made this statement on Saturday. The area is currently teeming with civilians who have fled the violence throughout the remainder of the enclave.
