The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced the commencement of shelling "terrorist infrastructure" in Syria, as reported by"A short while ago, an Israeli army aircraft struck terrorist infrastructure targets in Syria in response to an attack towards the Golan Heights that occurred on Saturday," stated the army in a Telegram channel post.

Earlier reports indicated that the Israeli army conducted airstrikes on the refugee camp "Ash-Shabura" in the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip. This was reported by Al Mayadeen channel. Currently, there is no information on casualties. Israeli military had previously stated their intention to assist in evacuating children from the pediatric ward of the "Al-Shifa" hospital in Gaza. This was announced by the official spokesperson for the Israel Defense Forces, Daniel Hagar.

On October 7, 2023, Palestinian militants from the Hamas movement attacked Israel. They captured several border settlements, killed 1,400 people, and took hostages. The Israel Defense Forces expelled the militants from their territory, launched a powerful strike on the Gaza Strip, and besieged it. The recent escalation of the conflict between Palestinians and Israel, which has lasted for decades, has become the bloodiest to date. Subsequently, it became known that the IDF is conducting a ground operation in the Gaza Strip, destroying Hamas' underground tunnels. The only crossing point on the border between the Gaza Strip and Egypt was opened, allowing several hundred people to leave the besieged enclave.

On November 10, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Israel would establish full security control in the Gaza Strip and demilitarize the enclave after the elimination of the radical Palestinian movement Hamas.

Netanyahu also emphasized that the responsibility for the fate of the Gaza population lies solely with Hamas, not Israel. This was his response to criticism from French President Emmanuel Macron.

In Israel, according to the latest government data, around 1,200 people have died. This figure includes civilians, soldiers, foreign citizens, and workers. It has also been reported that more than 5,000 have been injured.

The death toll from Israeli strikes in the Gaza Strip has exceeded 11,000, with over 27,400 people affected.
