Israel’s war on Gaza updates: ‘No child should die from starvation’

We will be closing this live page soon. Here is a recap of the latest news lines:
Al-Aqsa Hospital warns of an imminent health “catastrophe” for hundreds of patients if fuel is not immediately supplied to the health facility in central Gaza. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The head of UNICEF says children are increasingly facing death from hunger and dehydration amid intensified Israeli military operations throughout Gaza with aid failing to enter the enclave.
Israeli forces pull out of Jenin, in the occupied West Bank, after a two-day raid that killed 12 Palestinians, including five children.
An Israeli drone strike kills a Hezbollah member in his car as he travelled through Nabatieh in southern Lebanon.
The International Court of Justice plans to rule on South Africa’s request to order an immediate halt to Israel’s offensive on Rafah on Friday.

Israeli forces have raided Qaffin, a town north of Tulkarem, leading to a woman being wounded during the raid, Wafa news agency reports.

Israeli raids in the occupied West Bank have intensified since October 7 with more than 8,800 people detained since then.

US Vice Admiral Brad Cooper, deputy commander of US Central Command, told reporters two of the injuries included a sprained ankle and a minor back injury.

He declined to offer details on the third. The $320m floating pier, built for delivering aid, is attached to Gaza’s shore.

Aid groups have criticised the pier as a costly and ineffective distraction from the fact that land deliveries – currently blocked and heavily restricted by Israel – are the most efficient way to help the wounded and starving people of Gaza.

Our colleagues at Al Jazeera Arabic report that Israeli fighter jets have launched air strikes on the Jabalia refugee camp.

The Israeli military has laid siege to Jabalia for the past week with six people killed in a missile attack on a home in the al-Faluja area on Wednesday.

Hamas’s armed wing, the Qassam Brigades, says its fighters are engaged in gun battles with Israeli forces, as well as rocket attacks, sniper fire and booby traps.

Protesters gathered their belongings as dozens of officers on bicycles arrived at 5:20am (09:20 GMT). In less than half an hour, only a few items remained where the 35-tent encampment had been, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

“The campers picked up their belongings for the most part and left by their own free will,” Philadelphia Police Sergeant Eric Gripp said.

In a statement, protest organisers said they launched a “strategic retreat” to ensure the “safe passage of all people and resources out of the liberated zone”.

Neither city nor campus police delivered a warning to clear the encampment but rather “we warned ourselves”, it said.

University President John Fry said the school is committed to protecting the right to assemble peacefully and express views, but he has the responsibility to ensure safety and educate students.

“An unauthorised encampment that involves large numbers of people unaffiliated with Drexel trespassing on our campus is illegal,” Fry said. yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs yfs
