Are Israel and Palestine on the brink of another war?
Oliver Holmes, the Guardian’s Jerusalem correspondent, discusses what has prompted the worst unrest in Israel and Palestine since 2014
Rachel Humphreysabout the violence that has broken out between Israel and Palestine. In recent weeks there has been asharp escalation in angerover Israel’s half-century occupation, its ever-deepening military grip over Palestinian life and a wave of evictions and demolitions. In Jerusalem, hundreds of Palestinians have been wounded in near-nightly protests that escalated over the weekend and spread to other areas of Israel and the occupied West Bank. Following weeks of intense violence in Jerusalem, Hamas, the Islamist group that holds power inside Gaza,
fired a barrage of rockets towards Jerusalem on Monday evening. Since then, it has launched hundreds more at Israeli towns nearby, and Israel has conducted dozens of airstrikes, including hits on residential buildings. More than 80 people, including at least 17 children, have been killed in Gaza, according to the health ministry. In Israel, seven people, including two children, have been killed.
Israel’s political leaders have saidviolent street clashes between Jews and Arabs inside the countrypose a bigger threat than the escalating military conflict with Gaza. Despite international calls for calm, there are fears that Israel and Palestine are on the verge of another war. headtopics.com

War that’s when two army’s face each other where’s the Palestinian army what would be more accurate is Israel is about to commit a Holocaust or is that anti Semitic Are palestinians on the brink of fighting for their freedom and rights again like they've been doing since 1948 aka when israel stole their land ? Yes and they won't stop.
I can only blame him for everything. May he be punished eternally in the hell fire. Amen. GazaUnderAttackk GazaUnderAttack Genocide ShaikhJarrah I would say they’re already engaged in one. It's Hamas, Hamas is who is attacking and being attacked in return. Facts matter Palestine GazaUnderAttack Gaza_Under_Attack savesheikhjarrah SaveGaza
‘War’? Disappointing. You’d think the British would know colonialism and genocide when they see it. The occupant ( Israel ) is taking over more and more land from the Palestinians and the international community does nothing Israel will destroy them. A war is supposed to be from both sides. It's not a war and the only victim is Palestine. It's a genocide.
Stop lying War between who?!!! Zionists have one of the most powerful arms in the world while Palestinians have nothing the literally have nothing. that's not a war that's a genocide against powerless minority GenocideinGaza
World holds breath as Lebanon joins Palestine fight to 'fire rockets' into northern IsraelTHREE ROCKETS have been fired towards Israel as Lebanon joins Palestine with tensions reaching boiling point. where d'you hold it When any missile falls from terrorist Israel, there is a child who dies, a child orphan, a child who loses his home, a child who loses safety. Israel kills children. GazzaUnderAttack Both sides are in the wrong by doing what they do
War is when both sides have military, airplanes, tanks, ammo. So no this is not a war but the genocide of Palestinians. your reporting is pathetic, there's genocide taking place in Palestine and you are silent about it GazaUnderAttack FreePalestine Israel was is killing on the name of Holyland, Palestinians are dying because is their land,
Thanks Non Trump prez? Always the same with Israel. Maybe the fuhrer was onto something Israel kills innocent civilians by bombing in Gaza and 'world leaders' don't do anything but watch. No sanction, no pressure and no effort to stop this massacre. GenocideinGaza GenocideinGaza A more appropriate title would be “The USA pushes Israel to start a war with Palestine”.
Killing children and vulnerable civilians is a crime against humanity. genoicdeingaza Is yellow paint yellow?
Israel-Gaza: What is the conflict about?Hundreds have been injured amid anger over the forced eviction of Palestinians from their homes It’s about Israelis terrorists
has its facts muddled, or the journalists are thick if they can't see the real issue/cause SheikhJarrah follow AJEnglish for accurate report,ignore this propaganda complicit in Israeli genocide. Cancelled my DD to 'support your journalism' for this disgraceful stance. War guardian a war happens between two nations of militaries. Not army vs civilians
A Massacre is happening in front of the whole World in Gaza, anyone who claims that this is the self defense of İsraell has a huge account for to give, they are an accomplice to this ethnic cleansing, genocide, terror. GenocideinGaza Brink? They are already IN a war and on the brink of a fundamental change.
So much for Trump’s Peace in the Middle East 🤦♀️ There can't be a war if there is only one armed side, and since when crimes are being called war ?!!! Israel is not a state but a terrorism organiztion. It has never been a state and it will never be one. SavePalestine FreePalestine GazzaUnderAttack SaveSheikhJarrah
War implies two sides have an army.
Hamas sends rockets deeper into Israel after Gaza airstrikes as conflict spiralsSirens sound in Jezreel Valley as death toll rises and Israel vows to continue military operations in Gaza until there is ‘complete quiet’ Palestinian rockets are just meant to stun not kill. These peace loving rockets is their earnest plea to stop the war. The deaths shown in Israel are due to Covid and smoke is due to mass barbecue cooking 'Rockets deeper into israel' seems to suggest that Hamas is much stronger than isreal. That Israelis vow to continue operation until 'complete quiet' seems to be impractical because the root causes of clashes do still exist. So unrests are to be expected.
It's not a war if only one side has an army GazaUnderAttack SavePalestine savegaza israelisaterrorist أطفال غزة يقتلون What harm can this little girl do to 'the whole state of Israel'? GenocideinGaza There is no Palestine. Jordan got 78% of the mandate, Israel 22. Fatah and Hamas have had multiple chances for territory in return for peace w Isreal. They choose instead to call all of Israel occupied and end the country.
Israel could wipe out the Gaza strip any time I wanted too. UN Egypt We are going through a worldwide SARS_CoV_2, Covid19 pandemic while Israel and Hamas are battling it out? Israel has vaccinated the majority of it's residents, while Palestine and Gaza have not. Hellish time for Gaza people; not vaccinated and dodging bombs!
Well let's hope it's over quickly. war crimes against civilians is now 'war' huh
