  • Israel is preparing for the next phase of the war as tensions continue to rise in Gaza. The Israeli military has announced that it is ready to launch coordinated strikes from the land, sea, and air. Residents of Northern Gaza have been urged to evacuate by Israel, while Hamas is urging them to stay in their homes. So far, more than 2,200 people have been killed in Israeli airstrikes, with last week's Hamas attack on Southern Israel resulting in over 1,300 deaths, mostly civilians. The State Department has confirmed that 29 Americans have been accounted for among the dead, while 15 are still unaccounted for. Special correspondent Leila Molana-Allen reports on the situation from Gaza, one week after Hamas' devastating terror attacks on Israel. Israeli soldiers stationed along the border with Gaza are preparing for what comes next, as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits them to ensure their readiness. Meanwhile, Gaza residents are desperately trying to flee the area to avoid harm. However, Israeli airstrikes have targeted convoys attempting to leave Gaza City. Striking airstrikes have also hit Khan Younis, a southern city where over a million Palestinians were told to evacuate. The residents claim that they did not receive any warnings or messages before the airstrikes hit their homes. The Israeli blockade has caused a shortage of clean water and other essential supplies in Khan Younis, with water and power being cut off. As a result, children are now bottling water from the hospital. The situation has left the residents without water, electricity, and bread.
