Israeli strikes killed at least 42 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, the worst daily death toll yet in the almost week-long clashes, as the UN Security Council met amid global alarm at the escalating conflict.
The Gaza Health Ministry said 16 women and 10 children were among those killed, with more than 50 people wounded, and rescue efforts were still underway.
At least 58 children have lost their lives in Gaza, local health authorities said, more than 1,200 people have been wounded and entire buildings and city blocks reduced to rubble.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres pleaded for an immediate end to the deadly violence, warning that the fighting could plunge the region into an “uncontainable security and humanitarian crisis.”
“Fighting must stop. It must stop immediately,” Guterres said as he opened a Security Council session delayed by Israel’s ally the United States, calling the violence over the past week “utterly appalling.”

शांति कब तक?
पश्चिम एशिया में युद्ध विराम हो जाने से दुनिया ने चैन की सांस ली है. लेकिन यह युद्ध विराम स्थाई होगा इसकी संभावना कम है. यह शांति कब तक रहेगी, इसे लेकर संशय बरकरार है. इसका कारण यह है कि फिलिस्तीन के साथ ही इस्लामिक दुनिया में कुछ लोग हैं जो न स्वयं शांति से रहते हैं न दूसरे को रहने देते हैं. वे किसी अन्य के स्वरूप और अस्तित्व को स्वीकार नहीं करते. सबको अपने रंग में रंगना चाहते हैं.

हमास-इजराइल संघर्ष विराम कब तक?
इजराइल-हमास युद्ध में भारत का बौद्धिक और राजनीतिक समाज भी बंटा नजर आया। वामपंथी और समाजवादी विचारधारा के लोग जहां फिलीस्तीन पर हो रहे हमले को लेकर इजराइल को दोषी ठहराते रहे, वहीं राष्ट्रवादी विचारधारा का तर्क रहा कि इजराइल को अपनी रक्षा करने और अपने खिलाफ होने वाले हर हमले का जवाब देने का हक है। दिलचस्प यह है कि चूकि हमास के हमले में सौम्या संतोष मारी गई थीं, इसलिए केरल की वामपंथी सरकार ने ना तो उनके परिवार के लिए संवेदना के दो शब्द इस्तेमाल किये, ना ही उनके निधन के लिए हमास को जिम्मेदार ठहराया।
