Israel-Hamas War Live Updates: Israel will take ‘indefinite overall security responsibility’ for Gaza after war, says Netanyahu

Israel-Hamas War News Live Updates (November 7, 2023): Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said today that his country will have “overall security responsibility” over the Gaza Strip “for an indefinite period” after the war against Hamas ends, as the conflict marked its one-month anniversary. He said he would consider “tactical little pauses” in Gaza fighting to facilitate the entry of aid or the exit of hostages, but again rejected calls for a general ceasefire.

PM Modi speaks to Iran President: PM Narendra Modi spoke to Iranian President Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi yesterday on the situation in West Asia arising out of the Israel-Hamas conflict, and the two leaders stressed on the need for de-escalation, continued humanitarian aid and an early restoration of peace.

What is the death toll? The Palestinian death toll in the Israel-Hamas war surpassed 10,000, including more than 4,100 children, according to the Hamas-run Health Ministry in Gaza. In the occupied West Bank, more than 140 Palestinians have been killed in violence and Israeli raids. In Israel, over 1,400 people have been killed in the October 7 attack and 242 people have been taken hostage by the militant group.

Israel rebuffs calls for ceasefire, but says open to ‘pause’; Israeli troops divide north and south Gaza; death toll exceeds 10,000; UN Secretary General says Gaza is becoming a ‘graveyard for children’. Follow live updates here.

Jewish man dies after altercation at Israel-Palestinian protests

A Jewish man who fell to the ground in an altercation amid pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian street protests in California died on Monday, and his death was determined to be a homicide, law enforcement and a Jewish organisation said.

Paul Kessler, 69, died of blunt force head trauma a day after the altercation on Sunday, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said, adding that witnesses described the incident as battery. “During the altercation, Kessler fell backwards and struck his head on the ground. Kessler was transported to an area hospital for advanced medical treatment. On November 6, 2023, Kessler succumbed to his injuries,” the statement said.

As of Monday night, no suspect was in custody in what the sheriff’s office said “appears to be isolated and not part of a large effort,” though it had not ruled out a hate crime. (Reuters)
