Israel Ramps Up Rafah Attacks

Israel stepped up its attack on Rafah this weekend, killing at least 22 people including 18 children, according to the Associated Press. This is not the ground invasion Israel has promised but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that there will be more of these airstrikes this week.

“In the coming days, we will increase the political and military pressure on Hamas because this is the only way to bring back our hostages and achieve victory. We will land more and painful blows on Hamas — soon,” Netanyahu said in a statement.

The war funding passed by the House of Representatives will both give more weapons to Israel and send aid to Gaza.

The head of Israel’s military intelligence became the first to take the blame for Israel’s failures to stop the October 7 attack on Tel Aviv. Major-General Aharon Haliva was the first senior official to accept blame and step down but many Israelis don’t want him. They want Netanyahu to step down but they are not likely to get their way while war is ongoing.
