Israeli Defense Minister said – Gaza is a stronghold of terrorism
On Tuesday, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Galant said that the Gaza Strip is the biggest base of terror created by humans. We will take every military and political action to bring back the hostages. On the other hand, the Israeli army has claimed that it has reached the center of Gaza city. PM Netanyahu said- We are entering Gaza city. We have also reached those targets of Hamas where it had not even expected. Thousands of Hamas fighters have been killed. If Hezbollah enters this war, it will be its biggest mistake.
Netanyahu said – Israel will not be in danger from Gaza after the war
Netanyahu said- There will be no ceasefire in the war until the hostages are freed. We will not even allow fuel to reach Gaza. We will eliminate Hamas and its regime. After this war, Israel will not face any threat from Gaza. On Tuesday night, Israel was attacked with 20 rockets one after the other from Lebanon. Most of the rockets were intercepted by Iron Dome. After the attack, the Israeli army retaliated and attacked many targets including Hezbollah’s weapons depot, rocket launching pad, anti-tank guided missile cell.
America said – recapture of Gaza will be Israel’s fault
At the same time, US President Biden has confirmed that he had asked Netanyahu to stop the war for some time for humanitarian aid and the release of hostages. Biden said- Recapturing Gaza would be a big mistake for Israel. America on Tuesday warned Israel against recapturing Gaza. White House said- We are discussing the future of Gaza with Israel. In fact, on Monday, Netanyahu had indicated that Israel intends to take over the security of that area after the elimination of Hamas from Gaza. Netanyahu had said – If we do not remain responsible for the security of this area, then the terrorist attacks of Hamas can reach a level which we cannot even imagine. Israel’s objective is to destroy Hamas, so that the possibility of repeating an attack like October 7 can be eliminated.
donating blood is my good fortune
In the midst of the war, Israel’s western allies are seen standing with it. Germany’s Air Force Chief Commander General Ingo reached Tel Aviv’s Sheba Medical Center on Tuesday afternoon. This is the largest civil hospital in Israel. Here he donated blood and then gave a statement to the media.

It is my good fortune that I have been able to come here to show solidarity with you and also donate blood. You may need it. Sheba Hospital later issued a statement. Said- It is very important for General Ingo to come here and donate blood. His visit gives a message of hope, unity and trust.
put pictures of hostages in parliament
Opposition leader in Israel Yair Lapid wrote a letter to Parliament Speaker Amir Ohana on Tuesday. Said- Photographs of Israelis and citizens of other countries who have been taken hostage by Hamas should be permanently displayed in the Parliament. Lapid further writes – I have met families whose relatives are in captivity of Hamas. It should be realized how much pain the families are in. First of all, the government will have to make every possible effort to release these hostages. Until the hostages return home, we will not be able to even make eye contact with their families.
Israeli army changed strategy
The Israeli army has made some changes in the strategy of the army conducting ground operations in Gaza. According to ‘Jerusalem Post’, the IDF is now mostly focusing on those dense settlements where Hamas has built a secret tunnel network or has rocket launch pads. The IDF itself issued a statement confirming the operation in civilian areas. On the other hand, some media reports say that Hamas’ tunnel entry gates in big buildings are being searched with Israel’s special detection device. There has been tremendous success in this so far.
Investigation into Hamas attack begins after a month
Hamas attacks on October 7 became the reason for this war. Now the Benjamin Netanyahu government, Israel Defense Force (IDF) and intelligence agencies (Mossad, Military Intelligence and Local Network) are going to investigate how Hamas was successful in carrying out such a major attack on October 7.
Meanwhile, Israeli newspaper ‘Jerusalem Post’ has published a report on the points of investigation. According to this, the first and foremost reason for the attack was the army’s belief that Hamas does not have the strength to carry out major attacks. That means she was a victim of overconfidence.
A commission will be formed to investigate
According to the report, the investigation may take some time or say a few months. An inquiry commission is going to be formed for this. Some information about the points that will be kept for investigation is coming to light. Some things have already been accepted by the army and intelligence agencies and there are some points which have not been mentioned on any platform yet. In fact, the Israeli army felt that Hamas was weakening in Gaza and would avoid any major conflict. He was also in dispute with Islamic Jihad. In May 2021 also, Israeli forces carried out attacks in Gaza. He thought that he had caused tremendous damage to the Hamas tunnel network, however, this proved to be his misconception, because the tunnel network had not suffered any significant damage at that time.
15 people are being killed every hour in Gaza
According to Al Jazeera, 15 people are dying every hour due to Israeli bombardment in Gaza. 35 people are being injured and 12 buildings are being destroyed. Meanwhile, Hezbollah has attacked 6 posts of the Israeli Army. The Israeli army has also retaliated. Lebanon’s terrorist organization Hezbollah has been attacking Israel since October 8. Here, since October 7, 39 French citizens have been killed in the war. 9 others are missing. Hamas took about 250 people hostage during the attack, including many foreign citizens.
Israel’s Operation ‘Swords of Iron’ against ‘Al-Aqsa Flood’
Hamas has named its operation against Israel ‘Al-Aqsa Flood’. In response, the Israeli army started ‘Swords of Iron’ operation against Hamas. Hamas military commander Mohammed Deif had said – This attack is revenge for Israel’s desecration of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. Actually, Israeli police had thrown grenades at Al-Aqsa Mosque in April 2023.
At the same time, Hamas spokesperson Ghazi Hamad told Al Jazeera – This action is our answer to those Arab countries which are growing closer to Israel. In recent days, media reports had claimed that Saudi Arabia may recognize Israel as a country on America’s initiative.
Why is there dispute between Israel and Palestine?
This conflict has been going on in this area of the Middle East for at least 100 years. There is dispute over areas like West Bank, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights. Palestine claims these areas including East Jerusalem. At the same time, Israel is not ready to give up its claim on Jerusalem. Gaza Strip is between Israel and Egypt. This place is currently under the control of Hamas. This is an anti-Israel group. In September 2005, Israel withdrew its forces from the Gaza Strip. In 2007, Israel imposed several restrictions on this area. Palestine says that an independent Palestine state should be established in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
