The Next Stage Of Israel Hamas War

Israeli Army spokesperson said that the military “continues to prepare for the next stage of the war - the manoeuvre.”

Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari told journalists “we constantly continue the logistical effort in order to arrive as best as possible to enter the manoeuvre”

On Thursday, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant ordered ground troops to prepare to see Gaza “from the inside,” hinting at a ground offensive aimed at crushing Gaza's militant Hamas rulers nearly two weeks after their bloody incursion into Israel.

Officials have given no timetable for such an operation.

Over a million people have been displaced in Gaza, with many heeding Israel's orders to evacuate the northern part of the sealed-off coastal enclave.

The war that is in its 14th day on Friday is the deadliest of five Gaza wars for both sides.

The Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry said that 4,137 Palestinians have been killed and over 13,000 wounded.

More than 1,400 people in Israel have been killed, mostly in the initial attack Oct. 7 when Hamas militants stormed into Israel.

In addition, 203 people were believed captured by Hamas during the incursion and taken into Gaza, the Israeli military has said.
