Latest news: On Tuesday evening, Norwegian time, the United States announced that it is against Israel’s “reoccupation” of the Gaza Strip. This was reported by the French news agency.
Meanwhile, White House spokesman John Kirby said that Hamas cannot participate in talks about what the authorities in Gaza will look like in the future.
Kirby says Hamas has genocidal intentions against the Israeli people.
The Red Cross announced that a humanitarian aid convoy came under fire in Gaza City on Tuesday. This is what was reported by Reuters news agency.
The convoy delivered medical equipment to Al-Shifa Hospital, according to the Red Cross and Reuters.
– Israeli Defense Minister Galant said that Israeli army forces are stationed in the heart of Gaza City, according to Reuters news agency.
Gallant also claims that Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar is isolated in a basement.
Hamas has not yet commented on Gallant’s allegations.
Earlier on Tuesday, Israel granted a four-hour deadline to residents north of Gaza City to reach the southern areas of the Gaza Strip.
Gallant refuses a ceasefire to provide aid to civilians.
– The hostages must be returned before there can be a humanitarian truce, says Gallant, according to Reuters.
Gaza health authorities announced on Monday that more than 10,000 civilians have been killed as a result of Israeli bombing of Gaza in recent weeks.
Gallant also claims that Israel is not interested in war against Hezbollah.
In recent weeks, there has been bombing from both the Lebanese and Israeli sides.
However, Gallant says about 70 Hezbollah fighters have been killed so far.
The Israeli Defense Minister reiterates Israel’s message that civilians must reach the southern Gaza Strip – for their own safety.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Hezbollah on Tuesday evening, Norway time.
– If Hezbollah chooses to join the war, it will be a big mistake, according to what Reuters reported.
Netanyahu repeats Gallant’s statement that there will be no ceasefire without the release of the hostages.
– Gaza City is under siege, and we have forces there, Netanyahu says.
