According to reports from foreign media, two Israeli women hostages were relocated from a specific crossing point. The age of these women is approximately eighty years.

These women are currently receiving medical care in a hospital in Tel Aviv, and have been reunited with their families.

Israeli Media outlets reported that the spouses of these women are still in captivity in Gaza. Previously, the Palestinian Resistance Organization released an American woman and her daughter.

In the meantime, fresh attacks by Israeli forces persist in the West Bank, leading to the demise of two more Palestinian individuals, while an American-Israeli soldier fell victim to a missile strike at the Lebanese border.

A third convoy transporting relief supplies, including 34 trucks laden with food and medicine, has arrived in Gaza. In an official statement, the Foreign Minister of the Palestinian Authority issued severe criticism of the United Nations Security Council, expressing that the organization's failure to prevent the ongoing tragedy renders it inconsequential.

The United Nations official, in her statement, conveyed the indescribable situation in the region. The dire circumstances have left 15,000 refugees without essential resources. Urgent provisions, including insulin and various medications, are required. We earnestly appeal to the international community to intervene and save lives.

Protests against the ongoing hostilities are taking place across different nations including Sweden. Thousands of individuals have taken to the streets to voice their opposition.

Despite prohibitions, protestors in Paris gathered in a display of solidarity and made an impassioned plea to international bodies to halt the atrocities in Gaza.
