A look back at almost 20 years of conflict between Israel and Hamas


The current conflict between Israel and Hamas dates back to 2005, when Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip. After winning the 2006 elections, Hamas took control of the enclave a year later following months of fighting between rival Hamas and Fatah forces. Since then, Israel and Hamas have clashed on numerous occasions, with civilians paying a high price each time. FRANCE 24 takes a look back at almost two decades of confrontation.

"We do believe that a deal is possible and we're going to continue to pursue it," State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller tells reporters during a briefing. "We think the benefits of a pause and a deal for hostages are tremendous, not just obviously for the hostages who would be released but also for the humanitarian effort in Gaza and for our ability to begin to pursue a real and lasting, sustainable resolution of this conflict," he adds.
