  • Nowhere to go: 'The whole population of Gaza is now squeezed into the south'

    Israeli forces battled Hamas militants in Gaza's main southern city on Wednesday in some of the most intense combat of the two-month-old war sparked by the October 7 attacks. The focus of the conflict has shifted into the besieged territory's south following fierce fighting and bombardment that reduced much of the north to rubble and forced 1.9 million people to flee. The civilian mass casualties in Gaza have sparked global concern, heightened by dire shortages brought by an Israeli siege that has seen only limited supplies of food, water, fuel and medicines enter. Israel has vowed to destroy Hamas and free 138 hostages still held after scores were released during a short-lived truce. As Israeli forces battle Hamas in main southern Gaza, FRANCE 24's Mark Owen is joined by Hussein Ibish, Senior Resident Scholar at the Arab Gulf States Institute (AGSIW) in Washington. He is also a weekly columnist for The National (UAE) and a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Daily Beast.

  • Gaza has turned into a 'death trap': 'Unliveable, inhumane to deprive an entire population of water'

    Egypt’s state-run media say babies evacuated from Gaza’s embattled Shifa Hospital have arrived in Egypt. The Palestinian Red Crescent rescue service said it was transporting 28 premature babies from a hospital in southern Gaza to another across the border in Egypt on Monday. Egypt’s Al-Qahera satellite channel broadcast images of the babies inside Egyptian ambulances, without specifying how many had arrived. Over the weekend, 31 babies were evacuated from Shifa. For more on the harrowing plight of the fleeing civilians in war-torn Gaza, FRANCE 24's Rochelle FERGUSON BOUYAHI is joined by Laila Baker, Regional Director for Arab States in UNFPA, the UN agency for sexual and reproductive health.

  • 'Carnage in Gaza is horrific', more than 1 million civilians 'entirely uprooted and forced south'

    The main UN aid agency in besieged Gaza warned it will have to stop operations by the end of Wednesday because it is running out of fuel as Hamas said the death toll from Israeli strikes had surged by more than 700 in a single day. Alarm has grown about the spiralling humanitarian crisis in the heavily bombarded Gaza Strip where one doctor said he was forced to perform emergency surgery on the wounded without anaesthetic. Israel has cut off impoverished Gaza's usual water, food and other supplies, and fewer than 70 relief trucks have entered since the war started -- "a drop of aid in an ocean of need", warned UN chief Antonio Guterres.Israel has bombed Gaza in response to an unprecedented cross-border attack by Hamas militants who, while firing a massive rocket barrage, killed more than 1,400 people and took 222 hostages on October 7, according to Israeli authorities. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to "eliminate Hamas" and Israeli strikes have now killed more than 6,500 people in Gaza, a rise of over 700 since Tuesday, according to the Hamas-run health ministry. Inside the battered Palestinian territory, Abu Ali Zaarab, whose family house in Rafah was bombed, charged angrily that "they're not waging war on Hamas, they're waging war on children... It's a massacre." For in-depth analysis and a deeper perspective on this brutal war that has already claimed nearly 8000 lives, FRANCE 24's Angela Diffley is joined by Khaled Elgindy, Senior Fellow & Director at Middle East Institute.
