  • Introduction to Video Content
  • In the ongoing conflict between Israel and Gaza, Israel has recently issued a warning of a potential expansion to its ground operation in the southern region of Gaza. The country's defense minister has stated that the situation in the north is wrapping up, and additional forces will be redirected to the south. This warning has raised concerns among Palestinians, especially after leaflets were dropped in the town of Khan Yunis, which is associated with Hamas leader Yehya Sinwar. Historically, these leaflets have instructed residents to leave their homes, causing anxiety among the local population. However, when questioned about these warnings, the Israel Defense Force spokesperson indicated that the specifics of any expansion would be kept confidential until the operation commenced. Meanwhile, Israeli troops have been present at the Al Shifa hospital, the largest medical facility in Gaza, for the past three days. During this time, the bodies of two female hostages were discovered near the hospital and brought back to Israel. The situation remains tense as both sides continue to navigate the complexities of the conflict.
  • Subtitles section
  • Meanwhile, Israel's ground operation shows no signs of slowing.
  • The country is under increasing pressure to address civilian deaths.
  • Journalist Iris Mackler is in Jerusalem and she spoke with Natasha earlier.
  • Iris tells us Israel is warning Palestinians an expansion to the war is coming.
  • Yes, it's warning of an expansion south.
  • You know, it first warned everybody to go south from the north.
  • But we've heard from Israel's defence minister that what he sees is that things in the north are going to be wrapping up or wrapping up soon and some other forces will be redirected south.
  • We did also see leaflets being dropped in Khan Yunis, which is in the centre to the south of the Gaza Strip.
  • a town associated with Yehya Sinwar, the leader of Hamas and the brainchild, the man behind the October the seventh attack.
  • So people were getting those leaflets and in the past what those leaflets say is to leave your homes and that makes some Palestinians in that area very nervous.
  • I do want to say that when the IDF, the Israel Defense Force spokesperson, was asked about that tonight directly, and he gives a daily talk each evening, he said that there would be an expansion, but that Israel would decide the time and the place and wouldn't tell people beforehand.
  • It would just do what suited it best.
  • So one other thing I do want to talk about is the al Shifa hospital particularly, the largest hospital in Gaza.
  • Israeli troops in there now for coming on for three days, no sign that they're leaving.
  • What the Israeli defense forces have said is that over the past twenty four hours they've found the bodies of two hostages,
  • two female hostages and brought them back to Israel.
  • Their bodies were found in the vicinity of Al Shifa Hospital.
  • Tonight we've also seen a third video released by militant groups inside the Gaza Strip.
  • You see an older man, believed he's been named, an eighty six year old man who was kidnapped from Gaza.
  • At the beginning he doesn't look well, he looks in the hospital setting actually, and at the end of the video he appears to be dead.
  • I think from what we hear from Israeli sources, these operations inside the hospital will continue as long as they keep finding weapons, material, other combat equipment, and of course as long as they keep finding hostages somewhere nearby.
  • Iris, basically from the beginning of this war, we've been discussing the issue of a humanitarian crisis on the ground in Gaza.
  • And the UN is again raising the alarm.
  • This time, the key focus seems to be about fuel deliveries.
  • What can you tell us about that?
  • I actually have a moment of good news.
  • It may be hard to believe, but it seems that the Israeli cabinet has just agreed, the war cabinet has just agreed unanimously to allow the entry of two tankers a day into the Gaza Strip for use by the United Nations.
  • I think that came because there was a World Health Organization warning that they really fear the spread of disease, all kinds of disease, but basically as a result of lack of sanitation.
  • And what they've seen so far is an increase in respiratory disease, an increase in diarrhea.
  • And they fear that if the electricity goes and the water goes, that'll be the end of that.
