The Israeli military said that more than 1,300 people, including 189 soldiers, have been killed in their country. About 1,500 Hamas terrorists were killed inside the country and hundreds of Hamas members were killed inside Gaza. On the other hand, according to Gaza officials, 1,417 people were killed there and more than 6,500 people were injured.
Israel claims its jets attacked 750 military targets in Gaza overnight. It also included Hamas tunnels, military compounds, residences for senior activists, and weapons storage warehouses. However, the ground invasion of Gaza poses a serious threat, as Hamas has abducted several people in the attack.
Tensions also rose along the Israel-Lebanon border as Israeli troops, tanks and vehicles were deployed on Friday (October 13), the seventh day of fighting with Hamas as the war expanded to include the northern borders with Lebanon. Israel has continuously traded with Lebanon’s Hezbollah group during the war.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the health system in the Gaza Strip is collapsing. A WHO release said the humanitarian disaster would not be averted if fuel and life-saving health and humanitarian supplies could not be immediately delivered to the Gaza Strip.
