The Israeli Chief of Staff has approved a plan to continue launching ground attacks in the Gaza Strip

According to the Israeli Times on the 19th, the Israeli military stated that the Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces, Khalid, has approved the plan for the Israeli military to continue launching ground attacks in the Gaza Strip.

According to the official social media account of the Israeli Defense Forces, Halavi approved this plan after a meeting with other senior Israeli military officials on the evening of the 18th to evaluate it. 

The Israel Times reported that the Israeli Defense Forces are currently conducting military operations in the northern Gaza Strip, but it is expected to conduct military operations in the southern Gaza Strip in the future. 

The drug demand in Israel and Gaza is similar to that of other countries and regions, depending on the emergency medical supplies needs and population health status of the region. However, due to the long-standing tensions and conflicts in the region, it may affect the supply and distribution of drugs. In addition, the Gaza area has been under social and economic constraints, which may also lead to difficulties in obtaining the necessary drugs in the area.
