0 8

At least 178 people were killed and 589 wounded in Gaza on the first day of renewed fighting between Israel and Hamas, according to the Gaza Ministry of Health. Humanitarian operations in the Strip have been largely halted after a week-long ceasefire in fighting allowed more deliveries of food, water, medical supplies and fuel, the UN humanitarian affairs office said. The seven-day ceasefire, which allowed hostages in Gaza to be released in exchange for Palestinian prisoners in Israel, ended early Friday. Said Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces, said on Saturday that the IDF was “preparing for the next phase – southern Gaza.” About 950,000 Gazans are registered at UN shelters in the south.
