The conflict between Israel and Hamas rages on. 

Israel's death toll has surpassed 1000 people since Hamas' attack, while more than 800 are dead in Gaza following retaliatory strikes. 

Up to 150 Israelis are being held hostage currently. 

Deputy Prime Minister Carmel Sepuloni told Kate Hawkesby that they're waiting on the next steps and will provide humanitarian support when the opportunity arises. 

She says those kinds of measures take time, but New Zealand is always quick to provide support and will do so when possible. 

US President Joe Biden will address the American people about the conflict shortly.
