Why is Israel back in northern Gaza? | DW News

Israeli authorities say a number of people have been arrested after protesters in the occupied West Bank blocked an aid convoy bound for Gaza.

The protesters were seen throwing food packages onto the road and destroying some of it. The trucks came from Jordan and were waiting to cross the Tarqumiya checkpoint west of Hebron. A far-right Israeli group says they were demonstrating against the continued detention of Israeli hostages in Gaza.

The United Nations has warned that Palestinians in northern Gaza are experiencing a ‘full-blown famine’. This as the Israeli army returned there to fight resurgent Hamas forces.

For more on this, we talk to Noga Tarnopolsky, a freelance journalist in Jerusalem who has covered Israel and the Palestinian territories for decades.
