‘No water or fuel’ for Gaza until captives freed


Israeli minister says no electricity, fuel or humanitarian aid into Gaza until Hamas releases all captives.
Israel continued to pummel Gaza with air raids, killing dozens of people, including nine children in the city of Khan Younis.

Officials in Gaza say the enclave faces humanitarian catastrophe with the territory’s only power plant shutting down due to a lack of fuel.
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu promised to “destroy” Hamas following the armed group’s surprise attack as he announced an emergency unity government with opposition leader Benny Gantz.
The death toll in Gaza now stands at more than 1,200, while the number of people killed in Israel has reached 1,300.
