The war, on its 18th day Tuesday, is the deadliest of five Gaza wars for both sides. The Hamas-run Health Ministry said at least 5,791 Palestinians have been martyred and 16,297 wounded. In the occupied West Bank, 96 Palestinians have been killed and 1,650 wounded. These innocents have been the victims of Israel's collective punishment since Oct. 7, 2023, under the pretext of Hamas's attack on Israel.

Earlier in the day, the Israeli military said that it has been preparing for "unrelenting attacks to dismantle Hamas".
