The war between Israel and terrorist group Hamas has claimed over 1,500 lives in the last three days, with the Palestinian group threatening to kill hostages if Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip continued. The armed wing of the terror group said “every targeting of our people without warning” will be responded to by executing the civilians taken hostage by them. As per reports, at least 100 people have been taken hostage by the group. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to turn Hamas-controlled areas “to rubble”, raising concern from United Nations over possible “humanitarian law” violations. The prime minister said that Israel “did not start this war but “will finish it”. “Israel is at war. We didn’t want this war. It was forced upon us in the most brutal and savage way. But though Israel didn’t start this war, Israel will finish it,” said he said.
