The ongoing war between Israel and Hamas currently has the Middle East on edge. In the aftermath of the October 7th attacks, Israel immediately conducted military action in the Gaza Strip to root out the terrorist organization.

The Israeli invasion is met with growing international pressure as civilian deaths mount in the operation. Hamas is also attempting to use the remaining hostages as leverage for as long as possible to escape comeuppance on October 7th.

As pressure grows for the war to end as quickly as possible, what lies ahead for both Israel and the Palestinian Territories remains uncertain, along with the regional aftermath that will also ensue.
