Evacuation to Egypt and Biden’s unexpected opinion: what is happening now in the war between Israel and Hamas

An Israeli occupation of the Gaza Strip would be a big mistake, US President Joe Biden said in an interview with 60 Minutes, reports Guardian.

“I think that would be a big mistake. Look, what happened in the Gaza Strip, in my opinion, is related to Hamas, and the extreme elements of Hamas do not represent the entire Palestinian people. And I think it would be a mistake for Israel to reoccupy the Gaza Strip,” Biden said.

Biden said that while he believes Hamas must be completely eliminated, there must be a path to the creation of a Palestinian state.
“Palestinian power is needed. There must be a path to a Palestinian state,” he said.

Biden warned that the threat of terrorism in the US has increased due to unrest in the Middle East.

Asked if he believed Israel, after the Hamas attack, would pursue the two-state solution that has been U.S. policy for decades, Biden replied: “Not now. Not now. Not now, but - but I think Israel understands that a significant part of the Palestinian people does not share the views of Hamas and Hezbollah."

The Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt will reopen for humanitarian aid, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said. Speaking after a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Blinken did not specify when the crossing would be reopened. US media reported that it will open at 9am on October 16 for a few hours.

“The Israeli government has not yet taken a position that would allow the opening of the Gaza crossing, allowing the entry of aid or the exit of citizens from third countries,” Sameh Shoukry, Foreign Minister of the Arab Republic of Egypt (ARE), said on October 16.

According to him, Cairo supports the opening of the crossing and the need to deliver urgent humanitarian aid to the Palestinian enclave.

UNRWA, the UN agency supporting Palestinian refugees, said on October 15 that Israel's deadly strikes on the Gaza Strip had resulted in an "unprecedented human catastrophe" as the death toll in the Gaza Strip rose to 2670 and 9600 injured.
“If we look at the problem of water, we all know that water is life, Gaza is running out of water, Gaza is running out of life,” said Philippe Lazzarini, Commissioner General of UNRWA.

More than 1000 people are missing under the rubble of buildings in the Gaza Strip after deadly Israeli airstrikes, Palestinian civil defense said on October 15. The civil defense group said in a statement that many others were pulled alive from the rubble 24 hours after the buildings collapsed.

Gaza health officials have begun storing bodies in trucks with ice cream freezers because transporting them to hospitals is too risky and there is not enough space in cemeteries. Videos posted online showed bodies wrapped in white cloth lying inside trucks.

Israeli officials said they were restoring limited water supplies to southern Gaza amid a wider water crisis.

US and Israeli officials are discussing the possibility of Biden visiting Israel soon at Netanyahu's invitation, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters on October 15. Biden's potential visit would follow similar visits by other senior US officials, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken and defense chief Lloyd Austin. Blinken is due to return to Israel on October 16 for a second round of talks with Netanyahu.

Biden, in an interview with CBS, said he was "confident" that Israel would follow the rules of war in the conflict with Palestine and added that the deployment of American troops was not necessary.

Fuel supplies at all hospitals in the Gaza Strip are expected to last about another 24 hours, the UN humanitarian agency said on October 16. “Disabling backup generators would put the lives of thousands of patients at risk,” the department said on its website.

So far, more than 600 Gazans have moved into the southern Gaza Strip, near the Egyptian border town of Al-Arish, ahead of an expected Israeli ground offensive. International aid workers in the Gaza Strip have described an unprecedented situation of “humanitarian collapse.”

The US has warned that the war between Israel and the Hamas group could escalate as US warships headed to the area amid growing clashes on the country's northern border with Lebanon. “There is a risk of escalation of this conflict, the opening of a second front in the north and, of course, Iranian intervention,” said White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan.

US Defense Chief Lloyd Austin announced the deployment of a second carrier group late on October 14, calling it a sign of "our determination to deter any state or non-state actor that seeks to escalate this war."

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said the United States would suffer "significant damage" if the Gaza war escalates into a larger conflict, Al Jazeera reported Oct. 15. “We conveyed our message to the Zionist regime through its allies that if they do not stop their atrocities in Gaza, Iran cannot simply remain an observer,” Iranian state media quoted Amir-Abdollahian as saying online.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on Hamas to release the hostages without conditions and called on Israel to ensure rapid and unhindered access for humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip. “Each of these two goals is significant in itself. They should not become bargaining chips and should be implemented because it is the right thing to do,” Guterres said. According to him, the Middle East is on the edge of an “abyss.”

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said that on October 15 he spoke by phone with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas about the situation in the Gaza Strip. Maduro told Abbas that Venezuela would send 30 tons of humanitarian aid to Gaza in the next few days, Reuters reported.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said the actions and policies of the Islamist group Hamas do not represent the Palestinian people, according to the official Wafa news agency, although it later removed direct references to Hamas from its report. In a telephone conversation with Maduro, “the President reiterated his opposition to the killing of civilians on both sides and called for the release of civilians, prisoners and detainees on both sides.”

Amnesty International has verified six videos of the attack on the Salah al-Din Road - a supposed "safe" route for Palestinians traveling to Gaza - which left at least 70 people dead. Amnesty International condemned Israel's forced evacuation of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip, saying: "Israel's 'evacuation' order does NOT comply with international humanitarian law and must be rescinded."

The leaders of the 27 EU member states issued a statement outlining their position on the situation in the Middle East. “The European Union condemns Hamas and its brutal and indiscriminate terrorist attacks across Israel in the strongest possible terms and deeply regrets the loss of life,” the European Council said.
