Israel resumed bombing Gaza shortly after a week-long ceasefire expired, signifying a return to full-scale conflict. The ceasefire, mediated by the US, Qatar, and Egypt, ended due to accusations of violations.
Israel accused Hamas of firing rockets from Gaza, and Hamas claimed Israel had not released all abducted women.
Casualties were reported, with six Palestinians killed in an Israeli air raid on Rafah and two children killed in Gaza City. Tensions remained high, marked by sirens in Israeli communities near Gaza due to rocket attacks.
Humanitarian aid had been allowed into Gaza during the truce, but it fell short of the region's needs. Efforts to extend the ceasefire faced uncertainty, emphasizing the fragility of the situation and concerns over the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
