I am aware of the recent escalation of violence between Israel and Palestine. On May 10, 2023, Israel launched a series of airstrikes on the Gaza Strip in response to rocket fire from the Palestinian territory. The airstrikes killed at least 24 Palestinians, including nine children. The Palestinian Health Ministry said that most of the children belonged to the same extended family.
The Israeli military said that the airstrikes were targeting Hamas, the Palestinian militant group that controls the Gaza Strip. Hamas has fired hundreds of rockets into Israel since the violence began.
The violence has been the worst since the 2014 Gaza war. The United Nations has called for an immediate ceasefire. However, there is no sign of a let-up in the violence.
The situation is very tense and it is difficult to predict how it will develop. I hope that a ceasefire can be reached soon and that the violence can be stopped.
