In this editorial episode, Mr. Sujit Nair discusses India’s foreign policy regarding Israel and Palestine, particularly in light of the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict. As of the fifth day of the conflict, the death toll continues to rise, with over 1,200 casualties in Israel, including 14 American citizens. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared a state of war in response to a large-scale and highly coordinated terror attack launched by the Palestinian militant group Hamas from the Gaza Strip. Reports from Israeli military and civilian authorities have confirmed a tragic event described as a “”massacre”” on a kibbutz near the Gaza border. An emergency response official witnessed children among the victims, some of whom were brutally killed in the community. President Biden has condemned the Hamas attack as an “”act of sheer evil”” and expressed concern for American citizens who are among the civilians and Israeli soldiers held as hostages by Hamas. It’s important to note that Hamas has been recognized as a terrorist organization by the U.S. government and has controlled the Gaza Strip since 2007. In the Gaza Strip, Israel’s retaliatory airstrikes have resulted in the deaths of at least 950 people, including around 140 children, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. The ministry also reported that over 5,000 people, predominantly women and children, have been injured in the blockaded Palestinian territory.
