Israel orders ‘full siege’ of Gaza and cuts off food and water: 10 points

The rubble of a mosque in Gaza, destroyed during an Israeli airstrike.

After two days of rocket fire, the Israeli army declared having regained control of the southern areas, close to the Gaza Strip, retaken on Saturday by Hamas.

Here are the Top 10 points of this great story:

  1. “We control the communities,” military spokesman Daniel Hagari said, warning that individual Hamas troops could remain in the area. Gunmen infiltrating from Lebanon have been killed, Israel said.

  2. Over the past three days, Israel has recorded more than 800 deaths. Palestinian officials said Israeli airstrikes on Gaza raised the death toll to 560 people. The United States has confirmed that nine of its citizens have died.

  3. Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said Israel would impose a “full siege” on the long-blockaded enclave. The impact on its 2.3 million residents will be “No electricity, no food, no water, no gas – everything is closed,” he said.

  4. Palestinians in the poor and overpopulated coastal territories are bracing for an Israeli ground attack aimed at defeating Hamas and freeing at least 100 hostages.

  5. By the third day of the war, the skies above Gaza were blackened with plumes of smoke as warplanes roared overhead. Hamas continued to fire rockets into Jerusalem, where air raid sirens sounded and detonations were heard.

  6. “At night, IDF fighter jets, helicopters, aircraft and artillery struck more than 500 Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip,” an Israel Defense Forces statement said.

  7. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned civilians in Gaza to stay away from all Hamas sites which he has promised to turn “into rubble”.

  8. On Saturday, more than 1,000 Hamas soldiers crossed the border fence into Gaza and invaded neighboring Jewish communities. There, armed men went from house to house, mowing down people or kidnapping them in Gaza.

  9. Israeli officials said that among the hostages brought back to Gaza were children and a Holocaust survivor in a wheelchair. The shocked nation compared the attack to 9/11.

  10. Israel now faces the threat of a multi-front war after Iran-backed Hezbollah launched guided missiles and artillery shells “in solidarity” with Hamas.
