JERUSALEM, Nov 4 — Fighting raged in Gaza today for a 29th day since Hamas militants stormed across the Israeli border and, according to Israeli officials, killed 1,400 people, mostly civilians, and abducted more than 240 others.

Since then, Israel has relentlessly bombarded the Gaza Strip and sent in ground troops, with the health ministry in the Hamas-run Palestinian territory saying 9,227 people have been killed, two-thirds of them women and children.

Here are five key developments from the past 24 hours:

Blinken in Jordan

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken was in Jordan today for talks with counterparts from five Arab countries, after visiting Israel in his efforts to secure humanitarian “pauses” in the war.

Amman said the foreign ministers of Egypt, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as well as a representative of the Palestinian Authority — led by president Mahmud Abbas, a rival of Hamas — would meet Blinken about the conflict.

Ambulance strike

An Israeli strike on a Gaza ambulance convoy killed 15 people, Palestinian medics said, spurring concerns for health workers’ safety. Israel accused Hamas of using the vehicles to transport fighters.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said one of its ambulances had been struck “by a missile fired by the Israeli forces”, about two metres from the entrance to Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said he was “horrified by the reported attack... on an ambulance convoy” and called for the fighting to stop.

South Gaza incursion

The Israeli army said today its forces carried out an overnight “targeted raid” in southern Gaza, where it has struck before but rarely sent in troops.

Soldiers “operated to map out buildings and neutralise explosive devices”, the army said without specifying the location.

It said “troops encountered a terrorist cell exiting a tunnel shaft. In response, the troops fired shells toward the terrorists and killed them.”

Nasrallah blames US

Hassan Nasrallah, leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement, a Hamas ally, yesterday said the United States was “entirely responsible” for the Hamas-Israel war as he broke his silence on the conflict amid concerns of a broader regional conflagration.

“America is entirely responsible for the ongoing war in Gaza and on its people, and Israel is simply a tool of execution,” Nasrallah said.

Nasrallah warned Israel against attacking Lebanon, saying the possibility of open conflict was “realistic”.

Pentagon spokesman Brigadier General Patrick Ryder told the BBC that Hezbollah was unlikely to escalate the violence, saying “a broader regional conflict has been deterred”.

Evacuations continue

Hundreds of Palestinians and foreigners, including Gazans requiring urgent medical care and dual nationals, were expected to leave Gaza today for a fourth day of evacuations through the Rafah border crossing with Egypt, according to a list released by the Palestinian border authority.

On Friday, a senior White House official said Hamas had tried to use a US-brokered deal on opening the Rafah crossing on humanitarian grounds to get its fighters out of Gaza.

One-third of the names on a list provided by Hamas of wounded Palestinians for evacuation were those of Hamas members and fighters, the official said.

“That was just unacceptable to Egypt, to us, to Israel,” the official added. — AFP
