"Israeli operation in Nuseirat grotesque, botched"

Israel is responsible for "massacring not only 274 Palestinians.. but reportedly also killing 3 hostages, incl a US citizen.

At least 64 chn 57 women 37 elderly.

“By providing intelligence & logistics support for this operation, [the US has placed] US forces at risk for attack as legitimate military targets."

Plus the attack was unnecessary; "a diplomatic solution was already on the table."

Analysis

Video: Prof Omar Ashour on the Israeli massacre in Nuseirat camp.

The day before the operation, Israel re-dispatched several brigades, which began heavy operations to draw out Hamas fighters & obscure the upcoming raid on Nuseirat.

Then, Israel’s military launched an intense assault. "The disastrous part was the killing of over 200 people."

Ashour discusses the folly of using force instead of negotiation.

Interview

with Palestinian analyst Nour Odeh:

Some countries are starting to see that letting Israel get away with murder for decades "has been wrong all along; that, without accountability, these horrors will be normalized internationally.

"So it's not just Palestinians... who will be suffering this unhinged brutalization."

Once it "is normalized, you can expect it to pop up in any other conflict in the world".

"How Israeli prison doctors assist in the torture of Palestinian detainees"

Israeli doctors:

  • share prisoners’ medical information with interrogators to “greenlight” torture;

  • teach interrogators how to inflict pain without leaving physical marks;

  • actively engage in acts of torture themselves.

Torture is a "colonial tool to subjugate & exercise control over Palestinians & is intertwined with its very inception as a state."

Gideon Levy:

The reason Hezbollah is attacking Israel has been forgotten, namely, the war in Gaza.

"Now there are two alternatives: The one, towards which we are heading, is to replicate the fiasco of Gaza all the way to the outskirts of Beirut.

"The second is to stop the war in Gaza.

"Peace in the Galilee will be achieved only that way."
