US-Israeli genocide in Gaza

Over five months into the Israeli genocide in the Gaza Strip, the regime is pushing its deadly onslaught on the territory. The regime’s latest airstrikes hit an area west of Khan Yunis, killing at least 15 people and injuring dozens of others. The area is used by displaced Palestinians to set up tents. The Israeli military targeted several locations in the Gaza Strip on Saturday. One of them was an airstrike that hit a 12-storey residential tower in the southern city of Rafah, making dozens of families homeless. According to the health ministry in Gaza, Israeli forces committed 8 massacres against Palestinian families over the past 24 hours, killing at least 85 civilians and injuring 130 others. It says the overall death toll has risen to over 31,000, mostly women and children since October 7. Thousands of others are also missing, and are feared dead.

Resistance retaliation

Tensions remain high along Lebanon’s southern border. The Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, has fired a barrage of rockets into northern Israeli-occupied territories. Hezbollah says it targeted the Meron settlements with dozens of Katyusha rockets. It said the attack was in support of the Palestinian people and resistance in Gaza and in retaliation for Israeli strikes on Lebanese civilians. In the regime’s latest attacks on southern Lebanon, five civilians, including four members of the same family were killed. Hezbollah and Israel have been engaged in clashes since the regime launched its genocidal war on Gaza in early October. 

Biden whitewashing campaign

Open contradiction as US President Joe Biden draws red lines for Israel on the Gaza onslaught while at the same time pledging not to abandon support for the regime. Biden told MSNBC that an Israeli incursion into Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip would be his red line. However, the US president added that he has no red lines concerning the delivery of weapons to the regime. Biden’s administration has given Israel unconditional support in its five-month genocide in Gaza. That includes using its veto power in the UN Security Council three times to block calls for an end to the genocide. The US claims this is to allow Israel to counter Hamas. But facts on the ground show Washington’s complicity in the regime’s killing of over 31,000 Palestinians.
