As we reported earlier, officials in Gaza say homes in the north were bombed by Israeli strikes last night.

The Wafa news agency reported deaths in Gaza City and across the territory.

As a reminder, the Israeli military has for weeks told people to leave Gaza City and the north of the strip, but thousands remain.

Here are some more details on the G7 statement coming out of Japan.

“We stress the need for urgent action to address the deteriorating humanitarian crisis in Gaza,” it says.

“We support humanitarian pauses and corridors to facilitate urgently needed assistance, civilian movement, and the release of hostages.”

The statement did not call for a ceasefire. As a reminder, “humanitarian pauses” are shorter than ceasefires, which are generally longer and part of a political process.
