Israel is ready to launch a ground offensive in the fight against Islamist Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip, while pushing ahead with efforts to secure the release of hostages.

Terrorists had carried out a massacre of civilians in Israel on Oct. 7 on behalf of Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip. More than 1,400 people were killed in the incident and in the days that followed. At least 222 others were forcibly taken into Gaza, according to the Israeli army. Since then, Israel’s army has been bombing targets in the Gaza Strip.

The number of Palestinians killed in Gaza has risen to 5791 since the war began, according to the Hamas-led Health Ministry.
