The official also added that Israel rejected Egypt’s efforts to mediate in de-escalating tensions.

On the morning of October 7, Israel was subjected to an unprecedented rocket attack from the Gaza Strip. Additionally, Hamas fighters entered border areas in southern Israel following major rocket attacks.

The military wing of the Palestinian Hamas movement announced Operation Al-Aqsa Flood against Israel. The Israel Defense Forces announced the launch of Operation Iron Sword against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. In his address to the nation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the country was at war and that he had ordered a large-scale mobilization of reserves. The Israeli army is clearing settlements.

The number of deaths in Israel as a result of the escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has exceeded 1,000, the Israeli Embassy in the United States announced on Tuesday.

According to the latest data of the Palestinian Ministry of Health, the number of deaths in Israel’s attacks on the Gaza Strip has reached 830.

The Al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas’ military wing) said they had captured dozens of Israeli soldiers and officers. Hamas Politburo member Musa Abu Marzuk later reported that more than 100 Israeli citizens, including senior military officials, were captured and held in the Gaza Strip.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had previously stated that the bloodshed between Israel and Palestine should be stopped immediately and called on the parties to stop hostilities. According to him, the solution to the Palestine problem can only be possible on the basis of UN Security Council resolutions that foresee the coexistence of two states.

The Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which relates to the territorial interests of the parties, has been a source of tension and conflict in the region for decades. In 1947, the UN resolution, which assumed the active role of the USSR, determined the creation of two states (Israel and Palestine), but only the state of Israel was created. While Israel declared that it accepted the two-state principle, it did not completely liberate the Palestinian lands.
