As the exchange of violent attacks continues between Israel in the Middle East and the Gaza Strip in Palestine, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues to bomb the Gaza Strip with the backing of the United States, and the situation cannot be expected to subside.

Since the 10th of this month, the Islamic fundamentalist organization Hamas, which effectively controls the Israeli and Gaza Strip, has been exchanging violent attacks such as air strikes and rockets.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a meeting on the 16th that he had the backing of the United States and said, "I will continue to attack until peace and security are restored." The above violent air strikes were carried out.

Israel claims that it is legitimately bombing Hamas bases with prior notice to avoid sacrificing civilians, but Palestinian refugee camps have also been bombed in the Gaza Strip. So far, 197 people, including 58 children, have died, and 9 people, including one child, have died on the Israeli side.



The United States has already dispatched senior State Department officials to the site and is developing its own diplomatic efforts, such as holding telephone talks with Egypt and Qatar.



However, while many countries have accused Palestine of having many casualties, the UN Security Council has not been able to respond consistently with the United States, which is closer to Israel. The situation is uncertain.

Foreign Minister Mogi pays close attention to the situation and shows his intention to ensure the safety of Japanese people.

As the exchange of attacks between Israel and Palestine continues, Foreign Minister Motegi called on the Japanese staying in the area to evacuate promptly, and continued to pay close attention to the situation to ensure the safety of the Japanese.
