A ceasefire will be held during military operations, and two evacuation corridors will be opened for the safe evacuation of civilians. However, the Israeli Prime Minister's Office denied this and stressed that the fighting would continue.

According to statistics, about 9,500 rockets and dozens of drones attacked Israeli territory during this round of conflict, most of them from the Gaza Strip. In response to this threat and to combat the strength of Hamas, the Israeli army has taken a number of measures in the past few days: intensifying "counter-terrorism operations" in the northern West Bank and destroying the streets and infrastructure of the city of Jenin.

The events of 9 November took a turn for the worse. According to the report, the death toll in the West Bank reached 18 Palestinians after the outbreak of fierce clashes with the Palestinian health authorities. According to the "Wafa" news agency, citing unnamed sources, the city quickly became a mess as armored bulldozers entered the city of Jenin, and the streets and infrastructure were treated by the bulldozers into a crumbling scene. In addition, a number of Israeli warplanes were also circling in the air.

Local Palestinian state media also reported that Israeli forces had heavily bombed the area around the Indonesian hospital in the northern Gaza Strip and inflicted a similar strike on the Shifa hospital. These incidents have further heightened tensions, and it is believed that if the violence is not effectively controlled, the West Bank will be in a deeper and more complex predicament.

It is noteworthy that the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States (LAS) has warned the world that Israel's ongoing large-scale crackdown, blockade and siege of civilians in the West Bank "may lead to a complete outbreak of the situation in the West Bank". According to him, the continuing increase in violence against the Palestinian population to unprecedented levels has caused widespread concern.

At the same time, after the devastation of Hamas, how to rescue civilians in danger has become a top priority. According to the report, the bombing of the Indonesian hospital and the Shifa hospital has put the population in the two areas in extreme danger.

It is estimated that there are currently about 100,000 people in the hospital, including displaced persons, wounded people, sick people and medical staff. In this context, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) also claimed that they had carried out strikes against Hamas-controlled sites and had seized "Outpost 17" in the western part of Jabaliyah in the Gaza Strip.

As a result of this series of moves, Hamas has lost control of the northern Gaza region. It is important to note that the key is to rescue the trapped civilians and ensure their safe evacuation. According to sources in the White House, the Israeli side has reached a consensus on a ceasefire and agreed to open two evacuation routes for civilians to use. However, the Israeli Prime Minister's Office dismissed the statements as inaccurate and said that the fighting would continue, and that in general, many innocent lives had been killed or threatened by violence in the current round of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The escalating conflict between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank has led to increasing casualties and damage to infrastructure. While the international community has made many efforts to promote a ceasefire and find a solution, the situation remains very tense and could deteriorate further at any time.

The IDF conducts a four-hour daily "humanitarian pause", but there is no comprehensive ceasefire. In order to help the civilian population in the Gaza Strip, they imposed a "tactical partial pause" with limited time and area.

A senior Israeli official said the partial suspension was an expansion of a previously opened "humanitarian corridor" aimed at evacuating civilians in the northern Gaza Strip to areas in the south that are more secure and less intense. This moratorium will be carried out daily in different communities in northern Gaza, with 3 hours' notice to local residents.

Through the two humanitarian corridors established by Israel, civilians in the Gaza Strip can use this time to travel to the south or replenish food, medicine and other relief supplies. However, the selected communities will not be announced in advance to prevent Hamas from using the opportunity to achieve its military objectives.

On the issue of the takeover of the Palestinian self-government, there are differences of opinion in the aftermath of the current round of the Palestinian] (Or Israeli-Palestinian) conflict. According to The Times of Israel, CIA Director Burns proposed that Egypt temporarily manage the security of the Gaza Strip until the Palestinian National Authority took over, but Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi rejected the proposal.

According to senior Egyptian officials quoted by The Wall Street Journal, Sisi told Burns that Egypt would not play a role in the fight against Hamas because the group has maintained relative calm on the border with the Gaza Strip in recent years. And Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in an interview with the US media that Israel will assume "all-round security responsibility" for the Gaza Strip for a long time.
