As the Israel-Hamas war enters in 45th day, Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) despite claims—that IDF reaches at gates and heart of Gaza City—have failed to eliminate the top-tier leadership of the Islamist resistance group Hamas and recover a single captive from Hamas captivity.
The global leaders United States President Joe Biden some European countries and the United Kingdom (U.K) openly supported Israel’s right to defense and cautioned Tel Aviv from hurting civilians but IDF bombed Gaza via land, air, and sea.
Tel Aviv military and civilian operators agreed and continued to bomb Gaza infrastructures including hospitals, schools, universities, and markets despite the Untitled Nations (UN) and World Health Organization (WHO) warnings.

Hamas said that the latest air strikes on Al-Shifa and Indonesian hospitals are a few examples that are undeniable facts of Israel’s war crimes against humanity. Prime Minister Netanyahu Bibi claimed that Hamas war headquarters are beneath the Al-Shifa hospital and IDF released some of the footage which international media found not enough evidence to accept the claim of the Israeli army's justification to bomb and raid hospitals.
Israel-Hamas War Beyond Numbers
At least 387 Israeli soldiers have been killed since the start of the war, according to the Israeli army. The Israeli army said two more of its soldiers have been killed during fighting in northern Gaza—identified them as Yinon Tamir and Dvir Barazani, both 20 years old. While over 1,200 Israelis were killed in a Hamas surprise attack on October 7.
On the other hand, over 12,000 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed in Israeli air strikes.
The war in Gaza and Israel should not be covered in the light of the death toll as behind numbers, there are hundreds of thousands of human stories because people are being killed.
Egypt has categorically rejected any idea of settlements of Palestinian refugees in the Sinai desert announced Cairo will not take a single refugee in its country and advised Tel Aviv to settle Palestinians in its own desert if they want to.
Egypt has seriously warned and alleged that displacement [of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip] will threaten peace, security, and stability in the region and the world.
Egypt’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson said that Israel’s policy of blocking the entry of aid to Gaza is systematically aimed at pushing Palestinians to leave the Strip under the weight of bombardment and siege.
“Unfortunately, the grave Israeli violations of Israeli war crimes are not called by some by their real names,” Sameh Shoukry said during a meeting with the Chinese foreign minister in Beijing.
“Egypt is making every effort to bring aid into the Gaza Strip through the Rafah crossing, but Israel’s policy of obstructing the entry of aid is a systematic policy aimed at pushing the Palestinians to leave the Strip under the weight of bombing and siege.”
From humanitarian pause to ceasefire
Arab and Muslim ministers called on Monday for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, as their delegation visited Beijing on the first leg of a tour to push for an end to casualties and to allow humanitarian aid into the Gaza territory.
How many Israelis abducted by Hamas?
Vice of America (VOA) reported that Families and friends of about 240 hostages held by Hamas in Gaza call for their return as they participate in a five-day "March for the Hostages" from Tel Aviv to the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem,
