Recent Developments in conflict
The recent developments in the conflict shows that Israel has vowed to crush the Hamas presence from Gaza city and mentions that it will not recapture the territory.

Supplies of food, fuel and medicines have already been cut short in Gaza city and Gaza’s one and only power station was shut down due to lack or shortage of fuel.
