The most important developments from Friday, November 10:

The World Health Organization said on Friday that 20 hospitals in the Gaza Strip are now out of service, and that the largest hospital in the Palestinian territories was bombed that day.

President Joe Biden said Israel had agreed to a humanitarian “truce” in its war on Hamas in Gaza after pressure from the United States, welcoming the development as a “step in the right direction.”

Health officials in the Hamas-run enclave said on Friday that more than 11,078 people, including 4,506 children, have been killed since the start of the Israeli military operation. The number of wounded rose to 27,490, according to the Ministry of Health in Gaza.

Israel revised the death toll from the Hamas attack on October 7 from 1,400 to “about 1,200.” Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Lior Hayat said this was an “updated estimate.”

More than 100,000 Gazans have fled south over the past two days as Israeli forces conduct operations “deep in Gaza City,” Israeli military spokesman Admiral Daniel Hagari said on Friday.
