Israeli military killed 11 Palestinians in Gaza


GAZA: The Israeli military killed at least 11 Palestinians in attacks on central and northern Gaza in the early morning hours, the Wafa news agency reports.

Israeli forces bombed a house and a UNRWA warehouse in the neighbouring Maghazi and Nuseirat refugee camps in central Gaza, killing nine people, according to Wafa.

The Israeli military has also bombed a house in Gaza City, northern Gaza, killing two people.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office has said on the head of Israel’s Mossad has returned from Doha after an initial meeting with mediators trying to reach a Gaza ceasefire and hostage release deal and negotiations will resume next week, Reuters reports.

Netanyahu’s office said in a statement that gaps remain between the sides.

A top Hamas official has told AFP the group expects a swift Israeli response — “likely today or tomorrow morning” — to its new “ideas” for halting the Gaza conflict and freeing hostages.

With Israeli negotiators scheduled to arrive in Qatar for talks with mediators, Osama Hamdan insisted that the group’s military wing remains “in a good condition” to keep up the nine-month-old fighting.

Hamdan said there were no new concrete proposals in a document sent to Israel this week but “some ideas were proposed to overcome” Israeli reticence about a ceasefire. “We are waiting to hear a response, likely today or tomorrow morning,” he said.
