Israeli Hamas War: The conflict between Israel and Hamas has become more dangerous. Especially Israel is continuously attacking Hamas.

A court in the European country Netherlands ordered the Netherlands government to stop the delivery of parts for the F-35 fighter jet used by Israel amid reports of Israel’s heavy bombardment on the Gaza Strip and the death of a large number of people.
