    U.S. diplomacy tour hopes to calm tensions as Israel-Hamas war enters 4th month – By The Associated Press (CBC News) / Jan 7, 2024

    Fighting continues to escalate in Lebanon, West Bank and southern Gaza

    The Israeli military signalled that it has wrapped up major combat in northern Gaza, saying it has completed dismantling Hamas’s military infrastructure there as the war against the militant group entered its fourth month Sunday.

    Israeli military spokesperson Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said late Saturday that forces would “continue to deepen the achievement” there, and strengthen defences along the Israel-Gaza border fence.

    The announcement came ahead of a visit to Israel by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Biden administration officials, including Blinken, have repeatedly urged Israel to wind down its blistering air and ground offensive in Gaza and shift to more targeted attacks against Hamas leaders to prevent harm to Palestinian civilians.
