“Corporal Abraham Fetena…died from injuries sustained during shelling near Jerusalem earlier in the day,” the broadcast said.
The Israel Police press service announced that at least seven people were injured in an armed attack on a checkpoint near Jerusalem on Thursday, and three of the attackers were neutralized by security forces.
On October 7, within the scope of the Al-Aqsa Flood Operation announced by the military wing of the Palestinian Hamas movement, Israel was subjected to an unprecedented scale rocket attack from the Gaza Strip. After this, the organization’s fighters entered the border areas in southern Israel, opened fire on both military and civilians, and took more than 200 people hostage. According to the latest data from the authorities in Israel, approximately 1.2 thousand people, including civilians, soldiers, foreign citizens and workers, lost their lives, while more than 5 thousand people were injured.
In response, the Israel Defense Forces launched Operation Iron Sword against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Within days, the Israeli army took control of all settlements near the Gaza border and began carrying out air strikes on targets, including civilians in the strip. Israel also announced a complete blockade of the Gaza Strip: supplies of water, food, electricity, medicine and fuel were stopped.
Israel can only be stopped with a pan-Islamist ultimatum to the West
At the end of October, the ground phase of Israel’s operation in the region began. Gaza City was surrounded by Israeli ground forces and the area was effectively divided into southern and northern parts.
The death toll in Israel’s attacks on the Gaza Strip exceeded 11.5 thousand, and more than 29 thousand people were injured. The Russian Embassy reported that 20 Russians were killed, two were taken hostage, and seven were listed as missing during the escalation of the conflict. According to various sources, it is stated that approximately 150 Israelis may be held captive by Hamas. The movement itself stated that there were approximately 200-250 prisoners in the Gaza Strip.
The Russian Foreign Ministry called on the parties to stop the clashes. According to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s stance, a solution to the Middle East crisis can only be possible on the basis of the “two-state” formula approved by the UN Security Council, which envisages the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within the UN. It borders the 1967 capital, East Jerusalem.
The Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which is linked to the regional interests of the parties, has been a source of tension and strife 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.
