The IDF began storming the house of the head of Hamas in the Gaza Strip

Israeli authorities said IDF units were in the center of Khan Yunis, the main city of the southern Gaza Strip, where they were able to surround the home of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar in the Palestinian enclave, who is believed to be hiding in underground tunnels. According to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Sinwar's capture is only a matter of time.

Despite the fact that the underground tunnels most likely contain persons held by Hamas, the Israeli army command is considering the possibility of flooding the network of Palestinian underground structures with sea water.



According to the Ministry of Health of the Gaza Strip, the total number of civilian casualties in the Palestinian enclave as a result of Israeli attacks has now exceeded 17 thousand people, and more than 46 thousand were injured. More than 1,9 million residents of the Gaza Strip were forced to leave their homes.

At the same time, according to the British edition of the Financial Times, Israel's operation against Hamas may drag on for a year or even more. According to the forecasts of the publication's sources in the Israeli leadership, the most intense phase of the IDF military operation may occur in the first months of next year, 2024. One of Tel Aviv's stated goals of the operation is to kill three senior Hamas leaders - Yahya Sinwar, Mohammed Deif and Marwan Issa.

The IDF command assumes that the northern part of the Palestinian enclave will first be completely captured, after which Israeli army units will break through to the south of the Palestinian enclave.

    In short, the Jews will organize a complete holocaust for the Palestinians, slaughter or expel them from their native lands, occupy them completely, so that they can then lie to the whole world, foaming at the mouth, that these are their lands from time immemorial for thousands of years, they circumcised dinosaurs here millions of years ago...

      Even Gazans do not consider this place their homeland. Their ancestors became refugees 75 years ago and they still want to “go back.”
      The problem is that time cannot be turned back. Too much has changed in 75 years. Cities have grown up in place of villages and towns, and millions of people live there.

      Thrifty, don’t suffer, your compatriots won’t drown in the tunnels. Rat holes always have holes; the rats will come to the surface all as one, but they are unlikely to have time to pull out the rockets. In fact, you are sad that sinking terrorists will not lead to large casualties among civilians and is therefore humane. Have you forgotten how it all started? Did you start singing about genocide? And when the barmalei massacred almost one and a half thousand people in one day, was that not genocide? They would have killed every last one if their little arms had not been shortened. But I don’t believe the data on victims provided by the Gaza Ministry of Health: this is an interested office. And how many Hamas militants did anyone name among those killed in Gaza? And how many died in Gaza because they provided cover for terrorists? You, Thrifty, your own Nazism interferes with life.

        Bstepanov, don’t poke at strangers, this is firstly! Secondly, your dear Jews are terrorists who are massively bombing residential areas and facilities in Gaza, which is something you don’t want to see! Are you writing from Israel? Are you probably happy about every killed Palestinian? For you they are terrorists, it’s easier to genocide and holocaust them! I would honestly write what I think about people like you, but it makes no sense, you are one of those who lives by stereotypes and hatred of everything Arab and non-Jewish!

          Yes, for me they are terrorists. So you think that the 1200 Jews killed on October 7 are not people? That dozens of women raped by baboons, including very little girls whose pelvic bones were broken by the scum and then killed, are not people? No, these Palestinian militants are not people, they are ghouls, and the more terrible their death is, the better. Are you shielding these scum? So you are the same.

        The founders of ideological genocide are the Jews. Their holy book, the Torah, is a textbook on genocide. There are 3 Nazi countries in the world - Israel, the USA and Ukraine.
        Hamas is certainly a terrorist structure (although in Russia it is not considered one), but Tsahal is no better, if not worse.
        Hamas's goal is the destruction of Israel, and Israel's goal is the destruction of all Palestinians. I don't see any difference. There is not a drop of Palestinian or Jewish blood in me.

    In general, the best solution for everyone, including the Palestinians, Arabs, etc., would be the destruction of Hamas billionaires and millionaires in Qatar, Turkey, Egypt, Gaza, Kuwait, etc. Or their extradition. And there would be no bombing. Liquidation with the approval of the Arabs, Turks, Persians and that's it! The question is closed.
    The problem is that everyone from Washington to Tehran, and from Moscow to Eriyadh, needs this conflict.
    Ps. It would be difficult with Hamas millionaires, after all, several hundred

        That's right, it's very simple. The fact is that under capitalism, war must bring profit. Therefore, modern wars are simply beneficial to both warring parties - both the leaders of the terrorists and the leaders of Israel will not lose out. That is why you can often watch the struggle of Nanai boys with your own eyes.

    More than 1,9 million residents of the Gaza Strip were forced to leave their homes.

    If this is not genocide, then what is it? Almost two million people have become refugees in the twenty-first century. Almost twenty thousand civilians were killed, and even more were wounded. Where are the killed Hamas members? The assault on the house, which must be destroyed first, begins a month after the ground operation. Did they give you time to leave? Or is it simply more important to kill Palestinian civilians?

            I don’t know Arabic, and there are very few Russian-language resources with the Palestinian position. But I was not lazy, I studied this question and I will tell you the answer to what you so often ask - do Jews have the right to their own state?
            They have! Like the Kurds, like the Palestinians, like other peoples. But they do not have it at the expense of another people. You say that in ancient times there was Judea and Israel, and on this basis - Canaan was the promised land for the Jews. In this case, Ancient Rome has the right to two-thirds of Europe and even to your Israel tongue

                  So who prevented the Gaza authorities from negotiating with Israel to end the confrontation? For example, relations with Fatah in Daffa are not ideal, but they are incomparably better than with Gaza.

                Because the seizure of Palestinian lands was previously supported - the boomerang law. According to your logic, if a state seizes foreign territories and holds them for a certain time, the captured people do not have the right to fight the occupation.
