Israel-Hamas war: Mounting pressure from War Cabinet raises pressure on ...
Quick Glance: Benny Gantz threatens to quit without new Gaza plan
  • Benny Gantz, a member of Israel's war cabinet, threatened to resign from the government if a new plan for the war in Gaza is not adopted within three weeks.

  • His six-point plan includes the return of hostages, ending Hamas rule, demilitarizing Gaza, and establishing an international administration for civilian affairs.

  • Pressure is mounting on Netanyahu as hardliners in his government call for a military offensive in Rafah to crush Hamas.

  • Recent ceasefire talks have yielded little, and a vision beyond the war remains uncertain.

Aid offloaded from Gaza pier as Israel again denies genocide allegations
Quick Glance: USA Completes Floating Pier for Gaza Strip Aid
  • The U.S. military has installed a floating pier for the Gaza Strip to ferry crucial humanitarian aid into the besieged area, enduring intense fighting for over seven months in the Israel-Hamas conflict.

  • Despite facing logistical, weather, and security challenges, the maritime route aims to enhance aid delivery to Gaza. Aid shipments will be unloaded at a port constructed by Israelis southwest of Gaza City and distributed by aid agencies.

  • Amid heavy fighting displacing around 600,000 people, U.N. officials stress close monitoring of security conditions at the new shoreline aid distribution area could lead to a temporary shutdown of the maritime route.

  • U.S. troops anchored the pier on Thursday morning, with trucks carrying humanitarian assistance expected to start moving ashore soon. The World Food Program will oversee the aid distribution in Gaza.
