The Israeli army “indiscriminately, and therefore unlawfully, used white phosphorous in an attack on Dhayra, in south Lebanon, on October 16,” according to a new investigation by the UK-based rights group.

“The attack must be investigated as a war crime,” Amnesty International said on X.

Israel, which has refuted similar charges in the past, did not respond right away.

Israeli troops pushed deeper into Gaza Tuesday, driving tanks and armoured bulldozers through the rubble of shattered buildings and hunting for Hamas fighters who carried out the worst attack in Israel´s history.

Army footage showed soldiers, who are also seeking to free at least 240 hostages, advancing through a devastated landscape, with buildings reduced to a mangled mess of stone and twisted metal by weeks of relentless Israeli bombing.

Israel said it had struck 300 targets in the fourth night of land operations in Gaza, coming under Hamas anti-tank and machine-gun fire, as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed growing international calls for a ceasefire.

Following the rejection of requests by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for a ceasefire to alleviate an increasingly dire humanitarian situation, Israel stated that its forces had attacked Hamas fighters under the group’s extensive tunnel network beneath the Palestinian enclave of Gaza.

After Hamas’s devastating surprise strike on southern Israel three weeks ago, Israel has made eliminating the tunnels a top priority as it increases its operations inside Gaza.

“Over the last day, combined IDF (Israel Defense Forces) struck approximately 300 targets, including anti-tank missile and rocket launch posts below shafts, as well as military compounds inside underground tunnels belonging to the Hamas terrorist organization,” the Israeli military said in a statement.

Gaza journalists’ death toll stands at 31

By: Web Desk

It appears that the conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza may be the bloodiest single incident to affect journalists in recent memory.

The Committee to Protect Journalists reports that in the twenty-three days after Hamas launched its initial strikes in Israel, at least 31 journalists have perished: 24 Palestinian, 4 Israeli, and 1 Lebanese. (An extra nine are reportedly missing or in custody at this time.)

To put that figure in perspective, 57 journalists and media professionals lost their lives globally in 2022. The amount in Gaza is more than halfway there in less than a month, on and around a single piece of land about the size of Denver, Colorado.
