The week of June 4-10, 2024, saw heightened tensions and violence in the Israel-Palestinian conflict. The period was marked by significant confrontations, including rocket fire, military operations, and civilian casualties.

  • The southern arena: This past week IDF operations focused on the refugee camps in the central Gaza Strip and the Rafah area in the south. A terrorist infiltration near Kerem Shalom was prevented, during which an IDF soldier was killed.

  • The issue of the hostages: The Israeli security forces rescued four Israeli hostages in an operation in the al-Nuseirat refugee camp. A fighter of the counterterrorism unit was killed. The Palestinians claimed that more than 270 civilians were killed during the operation and accused Israel of a “massacre.” Despite this, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) said they were still interested in reaching an agreement that would lead to a permanent ceasefire, the withdrawal of IDF forces from the Gaza Strip and the release of the hostages in exchange for Palestinian prisoners.

  • Aid for the Gaza Strip: The delivery of humanitarian aid was renewed through the floating sea pier constructed by the United States military off the coast of Gaza.

  • Israel, Judea and Samaria: No terrorist attacks were carried out this past week. A car bomb exploded about a kilometer from a military checkpoint in the Jordan Valley; there were no casualties. The Israeli security forces continued their counterterrorism activities in Judea and Samaria. The security forces of the Palestinian Authority (PA) detained wanted operatives of the PIJ’s Tubas Battalion.
