Judy was an English teacher specializing in children with special needs and ADHD. She also treated children from the Gaza Envelope communities who suffered from anxiety and PTSD due to the Hamas rocket fire, utilizing meditation and mindfulness methods. She was a poet, an entrepreneur, and was dedicated to working for peace and brotherhood.

The military rabbinate gave halachic rulings on the death of more than 15 IDF soldiers whose bodies are held by Hamas.

Reports indicate that US President Biden is heavily pressuring Israel for a “day after” plan for Gaza, which includes governing by local Palestinian factions, and wants this plan as part of any future deal to release hostages.

Under pressure from the White House, the wider Israeli government cabinet met to discuss a new Qatari outline for the release of the hostages, and also the issues of the continuation of the fighting in Gaza and the day after.

Gaza Front Updates:

Hamas fired salvos of rockets twice into the Gaza Envelope communities, and once towards Ashkelon. No hits were reported.

The IDF announced the names of three heroes who fell in battle in Gaza:

Sgt. First Class (res.) Asaf Pinhas Tubul, 22, from Kiryat Motzkin
Cpt. (res.) Neriya Zisk, 24, from Masu’ot Yitzhak
Maj. Dvir David Fima, 32, from Kfar Yona

Member of the War Cabinet, Minister Benny Gantz, visited the south today and commented, “We are ready for the next stage in the fighting which will be continuous, powerful and deeper than Hamas imagines. Wherever the people of Hamas and the terrorist organizations raise their heads – we will take them down. Those who do not surrender will eventually be buried – in the ground or deep under it, sooner or later.”

IDF spokesman Brigadier General Daniel Hagari said, “We are operating in the tunnels inside Khan Yunis. The fighting will take time. These are ambitious war goals, but they are just.”

The IDF reported to have found over 65 million digital files and half a million physical documents inside Gaza, which contained useful intelligence aiding in the battle against Hamas, and especially in locating the tunnels. In one case, a map was found in Beit Hanoun, in the home of a Hamas commander, and the legend to the map was found in the home of a different Hamas terrorist. The map led IDF forces to many tunnel shafts, which they then cleared and destroyed. Other such maps and intelligence materials led to the hiding spots of significant ammunition and explosives.

In Gaza City, the IDF is still battling off the last of the Hamas battalion in Daraj and Tuffah.

In Southern Gaza, the IDF is continuing to advance both in the Central Camps, and in Khan Younis. In Khan Younis, troops located “several” tunnel shafts, including one inside a mosque, in which the soldiers found a rocket launcher along with other terror equipment. Another tunnel shaft which the forces found in the area connects to an underground passage and command center used by Hamas’s elite Nukhba forces. After thorough searches, the tunnels were destroyed by combat engineers.

IAF Air strikes were also reported in Muraj and Rafah, in the far south of Gaza.
