It appears that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu HAS become aware that American and other countries are worried that the continual NOT listening about the devastation and humanitarian suffering his troops have inflicted on those in North Gaza….
While America IS taking it on the chin for its Israeli support?
President Biden IS working HARD to get some sort of humanitarian accommodation for the suffering….
And to keep things from boiling over across the Middle East….
We are now told that Israel has allowed much more aid to flow into Gaza, that there will be some cease firing pauses and there ARE talks going on in Qatar in a effort to get some hostages released….And does NOT want to ‘occupy’ Gaza
Biden IS trying to get a Palestinian Group to replace Hamas in running Gaza…..
One would assume the American President is NOT Happy* with the Israeli Prime Minister’s deaf ear to him….
Did news media station’s ‘KNOW’ of the Hamas attack plans in advance?
Here’s what we know:
Israeli authorities, for their part, seemed intent on making clear that the pauses were limited in time and area, not a broader, sustained halt. Israeli soldiers have advanced deep into northern Gaza.
Israel has agreed to put in place regular daily four-hour pauses for civilians to flee, the White House said.
A day of fierce combat and diplomatic talks ends with a deal to try to help Gazans reach safety.
Islamic Jihad releases a video of two Israeli hostages in Gaza.
Israeli police detained five Arab Israeli politicians who planned a vigil against Gaza strikes, civic groups say.
The C.I.A. director and the Israeli intelligence chief met with Qatari officials to discuss a possible Hamas hostage deal.
Videos offer glimpses of the battle in Gaza.
Casualties in Gaza may be ‘even higher’ than previously thought, a U.S. official told Congress.
Palestinian officials say 18 are killed in the West Bank as violence spikes…..
The Israeli military has limited time to carry out its operations in Gaza before anger among Arabs in the region and frustration in the United States and other countries over the spiraling civilian death toll constrain Israel’s goal of eradicating Hamas, U.S. officials said this week.
As senior Biden administration officials push Israel to do more to minimize civilian casualties, Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr., the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Wednesday that he was worried each civilian killed in Gaza could generate future members of Hamas.
General Brown did not call for a cease-fire. But when asked by reporters traveling with him to Tokyo if he was worried that high civilian casualty numbers would generate future Hamas militants, he replied, “Yes, very much so.”
His comment offered a rare glimpse of divisions between Israel and the Biden administration, which has declared its support for Israel’s military campaign even as the civilian death toll has increased. It came as the United Nations secretary general, António Guterres, said that the number of civilians killed in the Gaza Strip showed that there was something “clearly wrong” with Israel’s military operations against Hamas….
The longer the bombing campaign continues, the more isolated Israel — and its ally, the United States — could become as countries around the world call for a cease-fire. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel has said that there will be no cease-fire until all the hostages are freed. But he also seemed to understand that Israel did not have unlimited time to achieve its objectives.
On Tuesday, Mr. Netanyahu said in a statement that Israel was working diplomatic channels to “provide the I.D.F. with international maneuvering room for continued military activity.”…
The issue is coming to a boiling point as Israel Defense Forces close in on Al Shifa Hospital in the center of Gaza City. Israeli and American officials say that senior Hamas operatives have placed a command and control center underneath the hospital.
I.D.F. officials say they do not intend to back off…..
*Asked whether he was “frustrated” that Netanyahu hadn’t “listened more” to things Biden had asked of him, the president replied, “It’s taking a little longer than I hoped.” Confirming that he had asked for a three-day pause, Biden said “I’ve asked for an even longer pause” in some instances…..
