Australian Woman Galit Carbone Killed in Hamas Attack

An Australian woman, Galit Carbone, has been tragically killed in a Hamas attack in Israel. Carbone, 66, was found dead outside her home in the Be’eri kibbutz, near the Gaza Strip border. This incident marks the first known Australian victim in the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.

Australian Government Condemns the Attack

The Australian government has swiftly condemned the attack and expressed condolences to Carbone’s family. Foreign Minister Penny Wong stated that the loss of innocent lives is devastating and unacceptable. Australia unequivocally condemns the deliberate killing of civilians and calls for an immediate halt to the attacks. The government has also demanded the unconditional release of any hostages and emphasized the importance of protecting civilian lives.

Support for the Grieving Family and Community

Home Affairs Minister Clare O’Neil expressed her deep sadness over Carbone’s death, calling it heartbreaking news for her family and the community. O’Neil assured the Jewish community that Australia stands with them, offering condolences and solidarity in the face of this violent and unjustified act of terrorism. The government is fully committed to providing consular assistance to Carbone’s family both in Israel and Australia.

Lives Disrupted by Ongoing Missile Strikes

The escalating conflict in Israel has left Australians living in the region frightened and living in constant fear of missile strikes. Janet Goodvach, an Australian living in Tel Mond, described the terror experienced by residents when they have only seconds to seek shelter after hearing a siren warning of an imminent missile strike. In some areas, the window of safety is as little as 10 seconds, making everyday life a constant struggle.

Emily Gian, who moved from Melbourne to Israel, shared her harrowing experience of rushing her three young children to a cramped bomb shelter whenever they hear the siren or the sound of the Iron Dome air defense system intercepting rockets. They now sleep together for comfort and security. The ongoing violence has devastated communities, disrupted daily life, and forced people to seek shelter in bomb shelters, even canceling funerals due to security warnings.

The Impact on Dual Citizens and Reservists

Reports have emerged of young dual AustralianIsraeli citizens joining the conflict and Israeli reservists returning from other countries to join the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). However, the Executive Council of Australian Jewry clarified that only dual citizens already in Israel are conscripted into the IDF. They emphasized that no Australians have flown from Australia to join the conflict. Serving in the IDF is compulsory for most Israeli citizens over the age of 18.

Australians Seeking Assistance and Departure

Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese announced that the Australian government will initiate an “assisted departure” for Australians who wish to leave Israel. Recognizing the difficulties faced by Australians with commercial flight delays and cancellations, the government will provide assistance with departure flights starting Friday. Australians who wish to avail of this option need to register with the government’s consular emergency center.

Conclusion: Tragedy with Global Implications

The tragic death of Galit Carbone highlights the ongoing violence and threat in the conflict between Israel and Hamas. The Australian government’s condemnation of the attack reflects the international community’s outrage over the deliberate targeting of innocent civilians. As the conflict continues to escalate and impact the lives of Australians living in the region, the government’s swift action in assisting those who wish to leave demonstrates its commitment to the safety and well-being of its citizens. The global implications of this conflict underline the urgency for a peaceful resolution that prioritizes the protection of civilian lives.
