36 premature infants suffer from severe diarrhea because there is no clean water. He said Israeli troops had taken away all the bodies from the morgue and from a mass grave that staff dug days earlier in the courtyard. The Israeli military had no comment on the report.

In the Nusseirat refugee camp, a strike crushed a building to rubble killing at least 41 people, staff at the nearby hospital said. Residents said dozens more were buried in the wreckage.

Early morning strikes outside the city of Khan Younis killed 11 members of a family who had evacuated from Gaza City. Dozens of wounded, including babies and young children, streamed into the nearby hospital.

Being holocaust victim in the past that doesn't entitle anyone to conduct genocide at all.

On Friday, the military said it found the body of another hostage, Cpl. Noa Marciano, in a building adjacent to Shifa, like that of another hostage found Thursday, Yehudit Weiss. Hundreds of mourners, many carrying Israeli flags, attended Marciano’s funeral Friday in her home town of Modi’in.

A horrible end to a terrorist attack in which more than 1400 people were murdered and kidnapped.

Israel is still suffering from this attack, as it is the target of daily missile attacks from Gaza that are hitting its civilian populations.

Israel must continue with its patient, humane, approach to eliminate Hamas, no matter what it takes.

You got the "no matter what it takes" correct. The rest is absolute propaganda BS.

Exactly. And like the Nazis, the bloodthirsty Zionists will pay for this genocide.

The number was revised down to 1200.

Nothing in the above article sounds humane, maggots crawling from wounds, starving population, contaminated water spreading disease, babies in incubators dying from dysentery, mass graves, entire families eviscerated.

Still waiting on this supposed evidence of the Al Shifa hospital being this giant super villain base that we were promised in Israel's elaborate CGI propaganda. So far we've gotten a few staged videos of sone AK47's and a Lenovo laptop conveniently un-password protected stashed behind an MRI machine. (Which is a giant electro magnet)

Oh yeah, and the calender they claimed was a hostage rotor with a list of terrorist names that was just the days of the week and even forgot that Arabic is read from right to left.

All of this is going to be pretty embarrassing when Israel is sitting in the international criminal court a year from now on trial for genocide. Which sadly will never happen.

It won't be long before the Arabs start to starve to death.

Why doesn’t Hamas just free the hostages and surrender? That would stop the conflict immediately

Because the hamas death cult leadership want the conflict to continue - and their money to keep rolling in.

It's not as if the war is impacting upon the hamas death cult leaders directly - they are safe in luxury in Qatar.

Why do Palestinians continue to support Hamas then? Last I ready they had a 53% approval rating in Gaza

Looks like the Palestinian terrorists are paying for their genocide. 

Slowly, but definitely surely.

And rightfully so.

I agree.

Power to Israel!

Israel is not going anywhere bank on it

80% of the population support Hamas, who’s stated purpose is to slaughter all Jews in the world. All of the money ever sent to Gaza has been stolen by Hamas for weapons and their own greed.

When they took control, they slaughtered the previous leadership. The people of Gaza, who support Hamas, have no water, virtually no infrastructure because of Hamas.

Egypt and Jordan refuse to take them in because they are deranged monsters.

Stop the crocodile tears. Where were you when a few hundred thousand muslims in Syria and Yemen were slaughtered by other muslims? Nowhere.

Ignorant fools of history are never swayed by evidence and truth.

This has very little to do with Hamas or hostages. The Zionists want Gaza cleared of non Jews as they want the West bank cleared of non Jews. An Israel for Jews and Jews only.

If this is the case why wasn’t Israel undertaking such an extensive bombing campaign on Gaza prior to the 10/7 attacks? If this is the case why did Israel withdraw from Gaza in 2005?

Is this taken from "The Onion"? You could have fooled me, but you didn't. Perspicacious Jews understand that Netanyahu's slaughter in Gaza with weaponry from "friends" in America etc. has made Israelis less safe and innocent Jews more exposed to anti-semitic violence around the world.

“The hospital has become a giant prison,” he said. “We are surrounded by death.”

Israeli military spokesman Col. Richard Hecht acknowledged that the troops' search for traces of Hamas was going slowly. “It’s going to take time,” he said."

Traces of Hamas? Didnt IDF say they had detailed maps of Hamas tunnels and knowledge of a command centre under the Al Shifa hospital? Where are they? it seems the dozen or so small arms found in the hospital were apparently brought into the hospital by the IDF in the "medical supplies" boxes conspicuously marked in English. Google the debunked pics.

...“It’s going to take time,” ...

What? To plant more "evidence" in the hospital? To fit Netanyahu with a set of "New Clothes" for his friends in the West to admire and fawn over? It's too late: the IDF's propaganda war is straining all credulity while the anger and disgust of millions with eyes to recognize war crimes when they see them will explode into violence and crises for Netanyahu & Friends, even if - "it's going to take time".

It must occur however unlikely, the 7th October loss of innocent life, yes call it what it is, a crime against humanity, atrocity. Yet in reality this fateful loss, in part caused by lack of security reediness, a failure to protect, maintain a full surveillance capability.

A sudden but fundamental intelligence oversight, the consequences contributing to 1400 victims, and the taking of 240 hostages.

Now, when is the IDF, Israel going to face up to this pertinent fact?

Yes Hamas has to take ultimate transponibility

However, the collateral damage, the soon to be an offensive in south Gaza, the Palestinian population millions kettled into a space that will could bring untold fatalities, hundreds of thousand of women and children.

The time is now, to pause and give Hamas a final demand to release the hostages.

The hostages seem to be the forgotten part of all of this, hardly ever hear them mentioned.

War is hell.

Let’s pray for peace in Gaza and the eradication of Hamas!

Looking very much like the hostages seem like nothing compared to the suffering the Palestinians have and will suffer over the years.

Removal of Hamas. Good, necessary. But there's no end game in place. Who will replace them or is Gaza to become lawless and without government? Israel does not want to rule and govern Gaza. Who than? The UN.

Israel could have turned all of Gaza into a parking lot.

They didn't. They care more about Gaza civilians than Hamas does.

Vital

But there's no end game in place. Who will replace them or is Gaza to become lawless and without government?

You think Gaza ran that country well?

Maybe since they so much compassion for these people.

The IDF can wipe out Hamas but they won't be able to wipe out the philosophy so easily and quickly. There is always a disaster when there's no end game. Like the US in Iraq.

Gaza is not a country. The civilian wing of Hamas did well helping the Arabs.

The question is what is going to be the outcomes?

Another question is the Palestine state?

The ICC has insists Jurisdiction in the instance of investigatory powers of/to potential war crimes.

Either Hamas or IDF/Israel.

Israel has barred entry of fuel since the start of the war

and

An extended blackout means an extended suspension of our humanitarian operations in the Gaza Strip

That seems quite deliberate.

Will the world stand by and watch until all 2.3 million residents have starved to death?

The IDF can wipe out Hamas but they won't be able to wipe out the philosophy so easily and quickly.

They don’t have to, they can get rid of all the senior fighters and it will take them years to reform and regroup, that gives the Israelis enough breathing room for a few years.

There is always a disaster when there's no end game. Like the US in Iraq.

A bit different.

Israel is already a state condemned by the world for its war crimes!

The message to stop the killing is one that Israel is not listening to!
