Israel-Gaza Conflict: Israeli Air Strike Kills Ten People at Cafe

On October 22, according to Palestinian news agency Wafa, at least ten people were killed when an Israeli air strike hit a cafe in the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Yunis. This incident followed a series of Israeli air strikes on various areas of the Gaza Strip on Saturday afternoon, resulting in the reported deaths of 29 people.

The conflict between Israel and Hamas began on October 7 when Israel experienced an unprecedented rocket attack from the Gaza Strip. In response, Hamas fighters entered the border areas in the south of Israel, marking the start of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood. The Israeli military reported the infiltration of fighters into the border areas and eyewitnesses described street battles taking place in settlements.

The situation escalated quickly, with dozens of casualties and injuries reported as a result of confrontations and missile strikes. The Israeli Defense Forces declared a state of readiness for war, and Defense Minister Yoav Galant called for a large gathering of reserve soldiers. The Israeli army soon announced the start of the “anti-terrorist” operation called “Iron Swords” and carried out raids in the Gaza Strip while closing roads around the area.

In response to the attack, Israel implemented a complete blockade on Gaza, suspending the supply of water, food, electricity, medicine, and fuel. The invasion and bombing resulted in the deaths of over 1,300 citizens of Israel and other countries, including at least twenty Russians. Additionally, approximately 4,400 people in Gaza became victims of the reprisals, with over 13,000 injured.

As of Saturday, the Israeli army claimed that Hamas is holding 210 hostages in the Gaza Strip. The situation remains tense and continues to evolve.
