US pledges more military support for Israel
The Israeli killing machine has continued its assault on the besieged Gaza Strip, with regime forces boasting about how they have struck 300 targets in a span of 24 hours, which included a series of hospitals and homes.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Monitoring: Tel Aviv said it had detained men while searching for resistance fighters and expelling others taking refuge.
In a recently released video the Israeli Minister for military affairs, Yoav Gallant, is shown in a “Hamas tunnel” claiming that capturing it was a military achievement.
The resistance movement of Hamas explained that the tunnel had been constructed solely for the purpose of carrying out Operation Al-Aqsa Flood telling Israeli occupation forces that they had done too little and were too late.
"You arrived late, the mission had already been completed", the video said in Arabic, Hebrew, and English. Even Israeli media are reflecting Israel's failure in this case.
If the generals are counting tunnels it suggests things are not going well, the video said.
Israel's military pains have been compounded by how its own forces have killed four of their own regime forces. Three were killed near Gaza City by invading Israeli troops. One was killed three days later.
Angry Israelis poured out into the streets in protests, venting their anger at Netanyahu, and calling on him to initiate negotiations to get the captives released.
More than 100 Israelis are still being held by Palestinian resistance groups in Gaza.
Although the US-Israeli genocidal war has passed the seventy-day mark, very little has been achieved by the Tel Aviv regime.
Not only is Israel nowhere near eradicating the resistance movement, Hamas, but also it has lost over 120 soldiers on the ground, so far by its own admission, while many battle tanks and other military equipment have also been destroyed.
The Israeli regime has even killed a few of the captives that it was meant to save.
This is why global public opinion on Israel has reached a point of no return, due to the civilian casualties, which have exceeded 20,000.
The US Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, has visited the West Asia region recently.
While in Israel, he met with Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and the Israeli Minister of Military Affairs, Yoav Gallant. Austin reiterated the ironclad US support for Israel.
At the same time, he expressed concern over the high number of civilian casualties and believes that Israel needs to transition from high-intensity operation to lower-intensity surgical operations, something which the US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan has also said.
This fight against Hamas, a deeply entrenched terrorist group in Gaza, is going to take time and it's going to happen in phases.
And we've said that from the beginning, and so there's no contradiction between saying the fight is going to take months, and also saying that different phases will take place at different times over those months, including the transition from the high intensity operations to more targeted operations.

But the notion is predicated on a lie, since the US Defense Secretary has, at the same time, pledged more US arms, vehicles, and, munitions, to Israel.
This can only mean that the US wants Israel to continue this war, which is why the US and Israel are finding themselves isolated on the world stage as a consequence of supporting this genocidal war.
The closest allies of the US and Israel are pushing for a ceasefire, which will be tested at the UN.
Allies like France, Canada, Australia, and even India, pushed for a ceasefire at the UN General Assembly recently.
A ceasefire, and the possible halt to this US-Israeli genocidal war, may be coming from a front that the US and Israel did not anticipate, and that is Yemen.
Yemen has followed through with its threats and has targeted Israeli-linked vessels.
The US has formed a coalition to deal with this thinking it would stop Yemen but how could it when a similar US-led coalition failed when it came to the nine-year war on Yemen.
The new coalition does not include Saudi Arabia or the UAE since both their economies were badly hurt in fighting Yemen's military.
The global economy has also suffered because of the US-Israeli genocidal war. Major Companies, like shipping giant Maersk, have paused Red Sea transit shipments.
Energy companies like BP and shipping companies that transport crude oil have stopped sending tankers to the Red Sea. More than $30 billion of cargo has been diverted from the Red Sea./Press tv
