Israel steps up bombing of Gaza as Biden urges it to protect civilians


Israel has intensified its aerial bombardment campaign on the Gaza Strip, hitting more than 320 targets in the enclave over the past day, as President Biden and other Western leaders expressed support for Israel while l ‘urging to protect civilians.

Israeli airstrikes, targeting Hamas militants and their operational infrastructure following their October 7 attack on southern Israel, have mainly focused on northern Gaza, ahead of a planned Israeli ground offensive. As the Israeli military intensified its bombing campaign, it again called on civilians to leave, warning that residents who remained could be seen as Hamas allies.
