Israel-Gaza live updates: Israel ‘expanding’ ground activity in Gaza, IDF says

The war, which began Oct. 7, is now in its 21st day.

At least 1,400 people have died and 4,629 others have been injured in Israel, according to Israeli authorities. In Gaza, 7,326 people have been killed and 18,967 have been injured, according to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Health Ministry.

Aid workers and officials fear that Israel’s call for an evacuation of the northern part of Gaza is precipitating a humanitarian disaster as electricity and other supplies have been cut off in preparation for what appears to be an imminent ground offensive.

Humanitarian groups have urged Israel to call off the evacuation and agree to a cease-fire, even as the country has asserted a right to defend itself — a right the United States endorses.
