The Israeli army claimed that more than 450 attacks were carried out in the besieged Gaza in the last 24 hours. Three Hamas ‘terrorists’ and an unmanned aerial vehicle were downed in these attacks. Turkish news agency Anadolu Agency reported this information.
The Israeli army said it carried out one-on-one raids on a Palestinian camp in Khan Yunis, southern Gaza, for about two hours. These attacks have eliminated numerous hidden Hamas fighters.
However, there was no immediate comment from Hamas, the pro-independence group of Gaza, regarding these Israeli claims. After the seven-day cease-fire, the Israeli forces started a full-scale military operation across the Gaza Strip from December 1.
According to the Gaza Ministry of Health, 17,177 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks since October 7. More than 46 thousand were injured. On the other hand, Israel claimed that 1,200 Israelis were killed in the attack by Hamas on October 7.
Meanwhile, the World Health Organization said that after the start of the Israel-Hamas conflict on October 7, 212 health centers in Gaza were attacked. 60 percent of the valley’s health infrastructure has been destroyed. 565 people lost their lives and 732 were injured. In this situation, the organization called on the international community to take steps to ensure the protection of the health sector in Gaza.
The United States vetoed the Gaza ceasefire proposal presented at the United Nations on Friday. The resolution, which called for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza and the unconditional release of hostages, was tabled by the United Arab Emirates, a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council. The proposal was co-sponsored by at least 97 countries.
Thirteen of the 15 members of the Security Council voted in favor of the ceasefire resolution. The United Kingdom abstained from voting. In the end, the US vetoed the proposal. A resolution cannot be passed if the five permanent members of the Security Council vote against the veto.
