Rate this post

On October 7, the world learned of the surprise attack by the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), recognized by the United Nations (UN), the European Union, the United States, among other countries, as a terrorist organization. Just at 06:30 am local time, the Hamas group attacked various points in Israel by launching rockets and then, with the support of a bulldozer, broke into Israeli territory.

Media reported that one of the places taken was an electronic music festival called Nova, which takes place once a year, where 260 people lost their lives and hundreds of attendees of different nationalities were kidnapped. Shortly after, the Israeli Defense Forces reported that armed militants entered their country by air, sea and land, so they immediately began their counteroffensive, declaring a state of war alert.

Israel has one of the most advanced intelligence systems in the world, so much so that it is one of the main suppliers of this type of technology for several countries. However, on this occasion they failed, as they could not detect the Hamas group's attack intentions in time, which surely was not planned from one day to the next.

11 days after the conflict began, where, in the first instance, several countries showed their solidarity with Israel as a victim of these events, even raising their voices, arguing that they had the right to defend themselves, today it seems that things are changing in public opinion. , since the military offensive of the Israeli government and the threat of invading Gaza was such that it has caused more than a million Palestinians to look for a way to leave. It should be remembered that the Palestinians are not Hamas. Even last week, the Prime Minister of Israel asked the UN to evacuate Gaza in less than 24 hours, given the planned military ground offensive, to which the UN responded that this would be impossible and that it would cause a major humanitarian crisis.

This has caused different demonstrations in the world in favor of the defense of the Palestinians and, even, anti-Semitic actions, marking the houses of Jews with the Star of David in different colonies of Berlin, Germany. For his part, US President Joe Biden declared that it would be a big mistake for Israel to occupy Gaza; added to the meeting of Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, in Cairo, over the weekend, with the leaders of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Jordan and Palestine, seeking a solution to the conflict.

The newspaper The New York Timesin its editorial, publishes that Israel must respect democracy, human rights and the rule of law, especially if it wishes to maintain the Washington agreement in its offensive against Hamas.

Let us hope that this conflict ends on good terms, both for the Palestinians and the Israelis, and does not escalate to other countries, since having a war in the Middle East, added to what is happening today in Ukraine, could be a catastrophe. world.
