MOSCOW, November 3, Mikhail Katkov. IDF reported capture positions in the center of the Gaza Strip. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of Palestinian civilians have already been killed and wounded, including thousands of children. International organizations are calling on Tel Aviv to comply with the rules of war, but in vain.

“Tragedy of War” The purpose of the operation is to destroy the military and political potential of Hamas, they explain in Tel Aviv. “After clearing our territory and powerful air strikes, we moved on to action on the ground. War requires a willingness to pay a high price. Our people will continue to fight,” stressed the head of the National Security Council, Tzahi Hanegbi.

According to the American website Axios, Israel brought at least two armored and infantry divisions with a total number of over 20 thousand people. The ground forces are supported by fighter jets, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles, naval forces, artillery.

Let's remember: the war began on October 7 after Hamas militants killed about 1,400 people and captured about 230. Massive rocket attacks on the Gaza Strip followed. Three weeks later, troops entered there. So far, over 3.4 thousand children have died, at least 940 are missing, 8.8 thousand Palestinians have been killed, and more than 22 thousand have been wounded.
IDF spokesman Richard Hecht admitted that Israel struck the Jebaliya refugee camp on October 31. According to the Gaza Ministry of Internal Affairs, the number of victims exceeded 400. “This is a tragedy of war,” Hecht said. In Tel Aviv they explain that they wanted to eliminate one of the Hamas leaders, but he hid among civilians. In total, 11 thousand objects have been attacked in the Gaza Strip since October 7.

International reaction UN Deputy Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Martin Griffiths called the attack on the Jebaliya refugee camp an atrocity. “The fighting has entered an even more terrifying phase with increasingly dire humanitarian consequences,” he said after a two-day visit to Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory. The head of EU diplomacy, Josep Borrell, was also shocked by this. “The laws of war and humanity must always be respected,” he emphasized.

Nevertheless, on November 1, the IDF attacked the camp a second time. At least 80 people died. “The scenes of carnage coming out of the Gaza Strip are horrific,” UNICEF responded.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called on Muslim countries to end trade and economic cooperation with Israel. According to him, this will be a response to the crimes that Tel Aviv is committing in Palestine. The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi, announced that Tehran will not heed US warnings about non-intervention. And he denied accusations of involvement in the Hamas attack.
Yemen has launched ballistic and cruise missiles and drones at targets in Israel. Brigadier General Yahya al-Sari explained that this was done “out of a sense of religious, moral, humanitarian and national responsibility.”

< br>The US and Israel are mulling deploying peacekeepers to the Gaza Strip following the defeat of Hamas, Bloomberg reports. Another option is the transfer of the enclave to the control of a number of Arab states, including Saudi Arabia and the UAE, with the support of the United States, Great Britain, Germany and France. The third is under the control of the UN, but the Israeli authorities consider this inappropriate.

What will happen “Israel will try to achieve the complete military defeat of Hamas. However, in modern conditions, the information component is very important in any conflict. Perhaps international criticism will force the IDF to act less aggressively and give the civilian population a chance to leave the combat zone,” says orientalist Nikolai Surkov “Even the Arab countries do not want to actively intervene. In the last few years they have had good relations with Tel Aviv, and they do not want to take responsibility for the war that other forces unleashed.”

According to the expert, the most correct thing would be to transfer the region under the control of the Palestinian National Authority. “At first it may be technocrats, and then we need to launch political integration,” he says. “But if elections are immediately held in Gaza, Hamas or something similar will win again. First of all, this is due to the difficult socio-economic conditions in the region “.

Leading researcher at the Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies Alexander Krylov does not rule out that the IDF will not seek the complete destruction of Hamas. First of all, it's not easy. Secondly, the organization was created with the support of Israel and, although it got out of control, it still achieved its goal: it defeated Fatah and generally destabilized Palestine.
“It may be more profitable for Tel Aviv to stop the offensive. Otherwise, we will have to sit down at the negotiating table with Palestine, since there will be no obstacles to dialogue,” explains the expert.
In addition, continuing hostilities requires large expenses. For a long war, Israel simply may not have enough safety margin, Krylov adds. So it’s worth thinking about how to complete the operation.
