Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Rages On Amid Talk Of Ceasefire.
Israel and Palestinian latest news: That the conflict is slowing down, Israeli airstrikes are reducing Gaza to rubble. Israel says a week and a half of this has decimated the Hamas tunnel network. Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the military infrastructure has been set back years.
But the infrastructure the people of Gaza depend on is also in ruins. Lines destroyed. Electricity only works one to two hours a day now. In many areas, freshwater is discontinuing. Hamas is still firing rockets toward Israel. But they’ve slowed down significantly.
The Israeli city of Ashkelon, 5 miles from Gaza, has born the brunt of the missiles. So much so, at the main hospital, they’ve moved all the patients underground for safety. The government built the entire emergency ward like a bunker.
To enter it, you have to pass through this giant metal door, which can seal off the whole area. Under thick, reinforced concrete, the hospital is now crowded and busy. They’ve treated 350 here wounded from rockets, on top of the expected workload. All now crammed into a tiny space.
What is it like to be operating in what is effectively a bunker? One of the doctors replied, “This is the best way to feel, like, safe during all the bombs. I counted as a few days ago more than eighty, eight-zero, alarms in 24 hours. All the hospitals are in the bunker.”
It is so deep down here, and you cant hear the air-raid sirens above by design. They don’t want to give patients more stress as they receive treatment and recover. So the children can only hear the clowns keeping their spirits up while the conflict continues overhead.
Israel is defending its military campaign. Netanyahu is telling foreign ambassadors today that even the most precise military strikes.
