Smoke was seen rising over the Rafah skyline on Wednesday as Israeli forces push deeper into the southern Gaza Strip city.

More than half a million Palestinians have been displaced in recent days by escalating Israeli military operations in Rafah and northern Gaza, the United Nations says.

Seven months of Israeli bombardment and ground offensives in Gaza have killed more than 35,000 people, many of them women and children, according to local health officials.

The war began Oct. 7 when Hamas attacked southern Israel, killing around 1,200 people, mostly civilians, and abducting about 250 others. Israel says militants still hold around 100 hostages and the remains of more than 30 others.
