Israel-Hamas War LIVE Updates: Following the recent Hamas attacks on Israel, the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, has taken action by removing numerous Hamas-affiliated accounts. Their statement emphasized, "There is no place on X for terrorist organizations."

Following the conflict between Israel and Hamas, the initial group of 212 Indian nationals arrived at Delhi Airport on Friday under ‘Operation Ajay’.

Meanwhile, Israel said 'deeply disappointed' over the lack of condemnation of Hamas attacks in Chinese statements, Reuters reported.

An employee of the Israeli embassy in Beijing was assaulted and is currently hospitalised, as reported by the Israeli Foreign Ministry.

Israel's military chief has declared, "Now is the time for war," while Israel deploys tanks in proximity to the Gaza Strip in anticipation of a forthcoming ground operation aimed at eradicating the Palestinian militant organization Hamas, which governs the enclave.

In an effort to garner international backing for its actions, the Israeli government presented graphic imagery of children and civilians allegedly killed by Hamas during a recent surge of violence in Israel to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and NATO defence ministers.

Meanwhile, in the Gaza Strip, the humanitarian crisis worsened as the region's sole power plant exhausted its fuel supply on Wednesday. Israeli airstrikes had led to the destruction of neighbourhoods, forcing thousands to seek shelter.

As per CNN, Hamas appeals to global relief organisations for humanitarian aid to Gaza.

Israel's legislative body authorized the emergency unity government led by Netanyahu, which includes several centrist opposition legislators, as a demonstration of the nation's unified resolve in combating Hamas.

According to public broadcaster Kan, the number of Israeli casualties has surged to over 1,300. A significant number of Israeli and foreign captives were transported back to Gaza, with Israel confirming the identities of 97 individuals among them.

Recap: Why Hamas fighters attacked Israel?

As the war between Israel and Hamas fighters complete a week, let's take a look on what prompted Hamas militantsa to unleash the deadliest assault on Israel's civilians.

Hamas, which seeks Israel’s destruction, says it is defending Palestinians’ right to freedom and self-determination. But the devastation following Hamas' surprise attack on 7 October, has only called for questioning the methodology taken up by Hamas fighters. 

Desperation has grown among Palestinians, many of whom see nothing to lose under unending Israeli control and increasing settlements in the West Bank, the blockade in Gaza, and what they see as the world’s apathy.

In addition to citing long-simmering tensions, Hamas officials cite a long-running dispute over the sensitive Al-Aqsa Mosque that is sacred to both Muslims and Jews. Competing claims over the site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, have spilled into violence before, including a bloody 11-day war between Israel and Hamas in 2021.

Will the Israel-Hamas war spread?

Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs Hossein Amirabdollahian said Thursday that if Israel’s bombardment of Gaza continues, the war may open on “other fronts," an apparent reference to the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah.

Israel is nervously watching Hezbollah on Israel’s northern border and has sent troop reinforcements to the area.

Qassim Qassir, a Lebanese analyst close to Hezbollah, said the group “will not allow Hamas’ destruction and won’t leave Gaza alone to face a ground incursion."

“When the situation requires further escalation, then Hezbollah will do so," he told The Associated Press.

With an eye toward Hezbollah, U.S. President Joe Biden warned other players in the Middle East not to join the conflict.

Hezbollah and Israel were engaged in a vicious monthlong war in 2006 that ended in a stalemate and a tense detente between the two sides. Lebanon is in the fourth year of an economic crisis and is bitterly divided between Hezbollah and its allies and opponents, grinding the political system to a standstill.
