Israeli army announces end of week-long ‘humanitarian pause’ in Gaza Strip and resumption of attacks

The "humanitarian pause," which began at 8 p.m. local time on Nov. 24 as part of the reconciliation between Israel and Hamas, concluded earlier Friday and the Israeli army alleged in a written statement that Hamas "violated the humanitarian pause."

Conversely, the Ministry of Interior in Gaza stated that Israeli warplanes entered Gaza airspace after the conclusion of the "humanitarian break." The statement further mentioned that Israeli military vehicles fired shots north of Gaza.

In an official statement from the Israeli army, it was reported that warplanes targeted Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip. According to the Anadolu Agency (AA) correspondent in Gaza, Israeli warplanes resumed airstrikes at various locations in Gaza.

Additionally, confrontations between Israeli forces and Palestinian factions resumed in the northern and central parts of Gaza. The Interior Ministry in Gaza also noted instances of Israeli military vehicles opening fire in northern Gaza.


According to the information received by AA correspondent from local sources, one Palestinian was killed and 4 others were wounded in the Israeli attack targeting a house in Al-Meghazi Refugee Camp in the center of the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army attacked a house in the center of Rafah city in the southern Gaza Strip, killing 4 people and wounding many others. Those killed and wounded in the attack were brought to Abu Yusuf al-Najjar Hospital.

Clashes took place between Israeli forces and Palestinian groups around the "En-Nasr" and "Rantisi" hospitals in the En-Nasr neighborhood in the northwest of Gaza City.


The media office of the government in Gaza said in a statement on its Telegram account, "The occupying Israeli army began to continue its brutal war against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip."

"The international community bears responsibility for the continuation of Israel's war on the Gaza Strip," the statement said, adding that the Israeli army targeted many homes and civilian areas in the Gaza Strip.

The international community, including the United States, U.S. President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State Antony Blinken, are responsible for "the crimes of the Israeli occupation and its brutal war against civilians, children and women in Gaza", it stated.

Emphasizing the violation of the laws of war and international humanitarian law, the government in Gaza stated that the international community gave Israel the green light to continue its attacks on the Gaza Strip.

"The Palestinian people have the right to self-defense by all means, to achieve its freedom and independence, to establish a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital following international law, and to completely dislodge the occupation from its territory,” it added.


In a statement made by the office of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Hamas was blamed for the renewed attacks on Gaza.

It was noted that Hamas did not release the female Israeli prisoners following the agreement between the parties and launched rockets towards Israel.

"By returning to fighting, we will emphasize that the Israeli government remains committed to the aims of the war. The objectives are the release of Israeli prisoners, the elimination of Hamas, and ensuring that Gaza does not pose a threat to Israel again," it emphasized.


Hamas' military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, announced that they launched a comprehensive attack against Israel called "Al-Aqsa Flood" on the morning of Oct. 7.

While thousands of rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel, armed groups entered the settlements in the region. The Israeli army also launched an attack on the Gaza Strip with dozens of warplanes. The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that Israel killed 14,500 people, including 5,000 children, and 3,500 women. It injured at least 32,000 people in its attacks on Gaza.

The administration said the number of missing persons crossed 6,000, with most of them suspected of lying under the rubble of the fallen buildings.

It was reported that 1,400 Israelis, including 324 soldiers, were killed and 5,132 Israelis were wounded in the attacks from Gaza.

The Israeli army hit Damascus and Aleppo airports. As the Middle East is once again turning into a bloodbath, a deadline has been set for nearly 2.5 million Palestinians to leave the blockaded Gaza.

In Israel’s attacks on Gaza, 52 journalists were killed.

In the clashes between the Israeli army and Hezbollah on the Israel-Lebanon border since Oct. 8, 55 Hezbollah members and 4 civilians, one of whom was a journalist, were killed. Three Israeli soldiers and one Israeli civilian were killed in the attacks organized by Lebanon.

Most recently, Israel attacked the Jabalia Refugee Camp in Gaza, killing civilians.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he was breaking off all contact with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because of Israeli attacks on civilians in the Gaza Strip.
