Israel-Hamas war LIVE: As the Israel-Hamas war entered the 18th day on Tuesday, Israeli warplanes are striking targets across Gaza ahead of an expected ground offensive in the besieged Hamas-ruled territory. Fears of a widening war have grown as Israel struck targets in the occupied West Bank, Syria and Lebanon and traded fire with Lebanon’s Hezbollah militant group. According to the United Nations, the number of people killed in Gaza has exceeded 5,000. Women and children have made up more than 62 per cent of the fatalities, while more than 15,273 people have been injured. Meanwhile, the British government says it has concluded that a devastating explosion at a hospital in Gaza was likely caused by a misfired missile from within Palestinian territory, rather than an Israeli strike.

    All acts of terrorism are unlawful and unjustifiable: Blinken at UNSC

    At the UN Security Council on the Israel-Gaza conflict, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says "...All acts of terrorism are unlawful and unjustifiable. Whether they target people in Nairobi or Bali, in Mumbai, New York or Kibbutz Be'eri...They're unlawful and unjustifiable whether they're carried out by ISIS, by Boko Haram, by Lashkar E Taiba, or by Hamas. They're unlawful and unjustifiable whether victims are targeted for their faith, ethnicity, nationality, or any other reason. This council has a responsibility to denounce member states that arm, fund and train Hamas or any other terrorist group that carries out such horrific acts. Let's not forget that among the more than 1,400 people that Hamas killed on October 7 were citizens from more than 30 UN member states, including many of the members around this very table. The victims included at least 33 American citizens...As President Biden has made clear from the outset of this crisis, while Israel has the right, indeed the obligation, to defend itself..."
