Israeli Tank Raid: Humanitarian Crisis in Gaza

Tags: Currents World News

In the Middle East, the violence continues. Israel carried out a “targeted raid” overnight in northern Gaza.

The Israeli military briefly sent in tanks and armored vehicles, claiming to strike several militant targets in order to “prepare the battlefield” ahead of its ground invasion. 

The raid comes as the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza strip worsens.

It has been under siege, running out of food, water, and medicine.

The only Catholic parish in the Gaza strip has been a source of refuge for Christians there and now they are getting the support of Pope Francis, who called the parish’s pastor. 

The Church of the Holy Family has been providing food and shelter for more than 100 people who lost their homes to the bombings.
