Having friends in high places in Washington lets Israel get away with murder.
On October 31, Ma’an News said continued Israeli air strikes so far killed 12 Gazans. Others were wounded, some severely.
Overnight Sunday, the IDF confirmed additional air strikes. Another ceasefire took effect at 10:00PM. Nonetheless, early Monday attacks continued, targeting Khan Yunis in southern Gaza. Israel overflights continue.
Given its propensity for violence, expect more attacks any time for any reason or none at all. On Sunday, Netanyahu relished having them, saying:
“There is no ceasefire.” Israeli forces will “protect the residents of the south and wipe out the rocket launchers. I promise that the other side will pay an even heavier price than it has up to now until it stops firing.”
