Putin said that the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is in an acute stage

MOSCOW, Oct. 11 Russia could contribute his contribution and contribution to the settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, but now it is at a very acute stage, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on the Rossiya 24 TV channel, answering the question about whether there is an opportunity for diplomacy today.
“ “Russia, in my opinion, could also make its mite, its contribution to this settlement process. But this urgency is such that we, in my opinion, do not see anything like this anywhere,” Putin said.
He also noted that Russia has had stable relations with Israel and friendly relations with Palestine for decades.

On the morning of October 7, Israel was subjected to an unprecedented rocket attack from the Gaza Strip. In addition, Hamas fighters, after massive rocket attacks, penetrated into the border areas in southern Israel.

The military wing of the Palestinian Hamas movement announced Operation Al-Aqsa Flood against Israel. The Israel Defense Forces announced the launch of Operation Iron Swords against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in an address to the nation, said that the country was in a state of war and said that he had ordered a widespread mobilization of reservists. On Tuesday, Haaretz, citing Israeli Defense Forces spokesman Daniel Hagari, reported that the Israeli military had taken control of all settlements near the Gaza border. Currently, air strikes are being carried out on targets, including civilians, in the Gaza Strip.

Against the background of the escalation of the conflict, a number of states have begun to remove their citizens from Israel.
The death toll of Israeli residents as a result of the escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has exceeded 1,200 people, the Times of Israel newspaper reports. According to the latest data from the Palestinian Ministry of Health, the death toll as a result of Israeli strikes on the Gaza Strip has exceeded 900.
Four Russians are listed as dead in Israel, six are missing. Dozens of citizens of other countries have also disappeared; citizens of Austria, China, Mexico and France are being held hostage by Hamas.

The Al-Qassam Brigades (the military wing of Hamas) said they had captured dozens of Israeli soldiers and officers. Hamas Politburo member Musa Abu Marzouk later reported that more than 100 Israeli citizens, including high-ranking military officials, were captured and held in the Gaza Strip. The head of the movement's Politburo, Ismail Haniyeh, said that there would be no negotiations about Israeli prisoners until the completion of the Hamas operation.

The head of the Israeli Ministry of Defense, Yoav Gallant, previously announced a complete blockade of the Gaza Strip and called the opponents “humanoid animals.” Israeli Energy Minister Israel Katz, in turn, said that he had ordered to immediately cut off the water supply to the enclave.
On Tuesday evening, the leaders of Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, had a telephone conversation, during which they emphasized that a long-term peaceful settlement of the Middle East crisis is possible solely on the basis of the “two-state” formula approved by the UN Security Council, which provides for the creation of an independent Palestinian state within the 1967 borders with its capital in East Jerusalem.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov earlier stated the need to urgently stop the bloodshed between Israel and Palestine and called on the parties to stop hostilities. In turn, Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergei Vershinin said on Tuesday that Russia stands for the resumption of the work of the “Middle East Quartet” (Russia, the USA, the EU and the UN) to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict, but Washington is opposed to this.

Amid the escalation of the conflict, the United States sent the aircraft carrier Gerald Ford to the eastern Mediterranean Sea.
The Palestinian-Israeli conflict, related to the territorial interests of the parties, has been a source of tension and clashes in the region for many decades. A UN decision with the active role of the USSR in 1947 determined the creation of two states – Israel and Palestine, but only the Israeli one was created. Israel, while declaring agreement with the two-state principle, did not completely liberate the Palestinian territories.
