Israel’s 2-Day West Bank Operation Leaves 12 Palestinians Dead and 25 Wounded

Jerusalem (AP): The Israeli military announced on Thursday the completion of a two-day operation in the occupied West Bank, which the Palestinian Health Ministry reports resulted in the deaths of 12 Palestinians and injuries to 25 others.

The ongoing Israel-Hamas war also caused tensions in the Red Sea, where a missile landed near the vital Bab el-Mandeb Strait on Thursday, fortunately causing no damage. In Lebanon, an Israeli drone strike killed one person and wounded three school students traveling by bus, according to the state-run National News Agency.

Over 400 people have been killed in Lebanon since the exchange of fire between Israel and Hezbollah began following the onset of the latest Gaza conflict.

On the international stage, Norway, Ireland, and Spain announced on Wednesday their recognition of a Palestinian state, a move celebrated by Palestinians as support for their long-standing aspirations.

In response, Israel recalled its ambassadors from these three countries. This development followed another significant setback for Israel earlier in the week when the International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor revealed plans to seek arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his defense minister.

Additionally, the International Court of Justice is currently examining accusations of genocide against Israel, allegations which Israel vehemently denies. According to Gaza’s Health Ministry, at least 35,000 Palestinians have been killed, though the ministry does not distinguish between combatants and civilians.
