Israel Hamas war live updates: Gaza authorities say death toll surpasses 10,000

The Gaza Health Ministry said the death toll in the enclave surpassed 10,000 after four weeks of war with Israel. The updated figure was released after another night of intense strikes on Gaza during a communications blackout. Israel’s military said it struck 450 targets. The Biden administration expects more humanitarian aid to begin flowing into Gaza within days, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said during a news briefing in Ankara, Turkey, on Monday as he wraps up a whirlwind tour of the Middle East, his second since the Israel-Gaza war broke out. Blinken also said he was optimistic that there would soon be movement on U.S. efforts to push Israel to implement “humanitarian pauses” in Gaza, though Israel has so far refused to agree to them.
