New developments concerning war in Gaza Strip

Israeli shelling in the Gaza Strip intensified after the regime’s army said its ground forces had expanded operations in the area.

Hamas says its fighters have clashed with Israeli forces in various locations. International media and aid organizations report that they have lost contact with Gazan workers due to an almost complete blackout of communications.

The Palestinian Journalists Union (PJS) expressed its deep concern for media workers in Gaza following the blackout.

The PJS said Israel targeted mobile phone and internet networks in Gaza to suppress information about new massacres it is carrying out in the Palestinian territories.

PJS holds the Israeli occupation authorities fully responsible for the lives of other journalists and calls on the UN and its agencies and all human rights organizations to immediately intervene and stop the genocidal war in the Gaza Strip and restore access to communications in Gaza, the union added in a statement.

More than a million Palestinian children and their parents live in sheer terror in the besieged enclave, humanitarian group Save the Children said.

The UN General Assembly overwhelmingly passed a non-binding resolution calling for a ceasefire. At least 7,326 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks since October 7; More than 1,400 people were killed in the Hamas attack on Israel.

Explosions lit up the sky over Gaza as Israel unleashed its biggest bombardment on the besieged enclave since the start of the war. Rights groups have warned that the almost total breakdown of communications in the Gaza Strip threatens to mask mass atrocities.

US officials tell US media that the US administration has been pressuring Israel to take a narrower dimension in the Gaza offensive.

Israel continued its night raids against the occupied West Bank and attacked the al-Jalazone refugee camp north of Ramallah.

The US ambassador to the United Nations called for the protection of Palestinian civilians just hours after Washington voted against a General Assembly resolution calling for a ceasefire.

Hundreds of American Jews and other activists stage a sit-in at New York's Grand Central Station to demand an immediate ceasefire.
