What You should know about the Israel Palestine Conflict

Israeli forces began airstrikes and ground operations after Hamas and other Palestinian armed groups launched a deadly ground incursion and rocket barrage on southern Israel on October 7, 2023, killing 1,200 people and taking over 200 hostages. Israeli operations have since caused severe destruction and widespread death and displacement throughout Gaza, particularly in the north, killing over 26,000 people. Diplomatic engagement brought about a temporary truce in late November 2023 and the release of some hostages but violence continues. Gaza is now the deadliest place for civilians in the world.
