U.S. claims it won’t support ‘unplanned’ ground operation in Rafah, Israel escalates attacks anyway

the U.S. has so far done little to meaningfully use its leverage in the region — even though Netanyahu threw out a proposed ceasefire earlier this week.   

Alarmingly, the Israeli military continues to intensify its attacks across the Gaza Strip. Over the past 24 hours, Israeli airstrikes have targeted several homes across Gaza City, as well as homes in Deir al-Balah and Rafah. Just last night, Israeli snipers gunned down at least 17 people outside of the Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis, in an example of an increasing trend of targeted attacks. 

Meanwhile, the humanitarian crisis across the Gaza Strip is only getting worse

Just a friendly reminder: Israel is an illegal, genocidal, colonial state supported by your country. They won’t stop. They are evil. They are killing unarmed civilians because they are hellbent on ethnic cleansing.
