Middle East conflict live updates: Israel tells negotiators to continue hostage talks after video released

The International Court of Justice said it would deliver a ruling Friday on emergency measures — requested by South Africa, citing the assault in Rafah — for Israel to cease military operations in Gaza.

A U.S. military official said Thursday that three service members on the U.S.-built pier aid operation had suffered non-combat injuries offshore. One was taken to a hospital in Israel while the others returned to duty, Vice Adm. Brad Cooper, the deputy commander of U.S. Central Command, told reporters.

Kamal Adwan Hospital in northern Gaza has been evacuated and is out of service, while the nearby al-Awda Hospital was “invaded” after an Israeli siege, according to reports cited by the World Health Organization.

At least 35,800 people have been killed and 80,200 injured in Gaza since the war began, according to the Gaza Health Ministry, which does not distinguish between civilians and combatants but says the majority of the dead are women and children.

Israel estimates that about 1,200 people were killed in Hamas’s Oct. 7 attack, including more than 300 soldiers, and says 282 soldiers have been killed since the launch of its military operation in Gaza.
