“Israel’s military confirmed the deaths of four more hostages held by Hamas — including three older men who were seen in a Hamas video begging for their release. Around 80 hostages captured on Oct. 7 are believed to be still alive in Gaza, alongside the remains of 43 others. Monday’s announcement came days after U.S. President Joe Biden said Israel has offered Hamas a deal to release all the hostages in Gaza and potentially end the Israel-Hamas war. At the top U.N. court, Palestinian officials asked Monday to join South Africa’s case accusing Israel of committing genocide in Gaza.” (06/03/24)
