Israel’s war on Gaza: ‘There is no joy’ as Palestinians mark Eid

Starving Gaza residents hold muted Eid al-Fitr celebrations as Israel continues to block food deliveries and launch deadly air raids. In his harshest criticism yet of the devastating war on Gaza, US President Joe Biden tells Israel to “just call a ceasefire” and describes ongoing military operations as a “mistake”.

The UN says half of March’s food convoys earmarked for northern Gaza – where hundreds of thousands of Palestinians face famine – were blocked by Israeli authorities.

At least 33,360 Palestinians have been killed and 75,993 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7. The death toll in Israel from Hamas’s October 7 attacks stands at 1,139 with dozens still held captive.
