By Kathleen Magramo, Nov 7: More than 10,000 people have been killed in Gaza since Israel launched its military offensive a month ago, the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Ramallah said, drawing from sources in the Hamas-controlled enclave. Meanwhile, the UN chief warned Gaza is "becoming a graveyard for children."

The UN Security Council, during a private session, failed to reach a consensus on a draft resolution aimed at halting the conflict. "There is no agreement at this point," a top US diplomat said.

Israel will have the "overall security responsibility" in Gaza for an "indefinite period" after the war ends, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed on ABC News.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken asserted he made progress on the goals he set for a whirlwind Middle East trip as he departed with few tangible results to show from a flurry of meetings with regional leaders about the Israel-Hamas war.
