Israel announces complete withdrawal of troops from southern Gaza Strip.

Israel has reportedly withdrawn all ground troops from the southern Gaza Strip, leaving only one brigade behind in the enclave, according to a military source. This withdrawal comes after four months of combat in the Khan Yunis area and six months since the beginning of the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

The remaining Israeli brigade in Gaza is responsible for securing a corridor between southern Israel and the Gaza coast, blocking passage to the north of the Strip, and facilitating operations in the center and north of the territory. This move marks a significant shift in the military presence in the region.

As of April 7, six months into the conflict, the death toll in Gaza stands at over 33,100 people, including 9,560 women and 14,500 children, according to the Ministry of Health in Gaza. Israel claims that around 13,000 of the dead are militants, while Hamas disputes this figure.

In light of the ongoing crisis, the British government has announced a military and civil support package to establish a maritime aid corridor for the Gaza Strip. This initiative includes the deployment of a ship from the Royal Navy to support the establishment of an international humanitarian corridor from Cyprus to Gaza in collaboration with other governments and the UN.

Efforts to provide aid and support to the people of Gaza continue amidst the ongoing conflict, with international partners joining forces to address the humanitarian crisis in the region.
