Netanyahu was determined to carry on with Gaza military offensive despite pressure for a ceasefire

Netanyahu was determined to carry on with Gaza military offensive

May 25, 2021: -On Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was determined to continue the bombardment of Gaza after U.S. President Joe Biden called for a “significant de-escalation on the path to a ceasefire” in a phone call between the two leaders.

Shortly after speaking with Biden, Netanyahu said he is “determined to continue in this operation until its objective is achieved to get back the security to citizens of Israel,” according to The Jerusalem Post and other Israeli media outlets.

The worst outbreak of Israeli-Palestinian violence from 2014 has entered its second week as militants in the blockaded Gaza Strip to keep going their rocket fire.

Hostilities have spilled out into Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Israel as Palestinian protesters strike in solidarity with Gazan’s clash with Israeli police. Some of the protesters throw rocks while police respond with tear gas. Many of the demonstrators are not in favor of Hamas but see the protests as acts of resistance against Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories.

On Wednesday, Lebanese security officials reported few rockets fired from southern Lebanon into Israel. The military of Israel said that air raid sirens were triggered in northern Israel and that one of the four rockets fired into the country was intercepted by its Iron Dome missile defense system.

“In response, IDF artillery forces are striking several targets in Lebanon,” the Israel Defense Forces said on their Twitter account.

Israeli Airstrikes from fighter jets killed six people in Gaza on Wednesday and leveled an extended family house in the territory home to 40 people. Family members say a warning missile fired five minutes ago in the bombing enabled everyone in the place to escape with their lives.

According to health officials there, the Palestinian death toll in Gaza rose to 227, including at least 64 children as of Wednesday. On Friday, Nearly 17 Palestinians have also been killed in the West Bank. The death toll in Israel stands at 12, which includes two children. On Tuesday, Two Thai workers in southern Israel were killed in a rocket attack fired from Gaza. Israel says over 3,400 rockets have bombarded its cities and towns.

The IDF said it plans to expand its bombing of Hamas’ tunnel networks, many of which run under Gaza’s civilian areas. Already few homes have been destroyed by the bombings, with Palestinian families buried under the rubble. Netanyahu said Tuesday that the operations show “there is a price” for Hamas’ aggression against Israel.

Israeli military spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus on Tuesday described the tunnels as the “backbone” of Hamas’ operations, saying that the campaign to obliterate the underground network “will be expanded” in the coming days.
