The death toll in the Israel-Hamas war continues to climb as Israeli forces’ devastating retaliation for the Palestinian faction’s brutal terror attack escalates with a sixth day of airstrikes on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip. While the toll in Israel from Hamas’ bloody rampage crept up, with victims still being identified in small towns along the Gaza border, images from inside the densely packed, completely blockaded Palestinian territory showed many neighbourhoods flattened. As hundreds of thousands of Israeli troops, regular and reservist, gather on Gaza’s borders, the Israeli government faces a near-impossible situation. At least 150 hostages seized by Hamas gunmen from southern Israel last Saturday are now being held at secret locations inside Gaza. Among them are women, children and the elderly.
