Israel declares bankruptcy in Gaza aggression on Hamas

14 15 2

As the Israeli aggression on Gaza continues for the third consecutive day, there is a conviction within the ranks of the occupation army that unless it strengthens its deterrence against Hamas in this round, the movement will threaten to resume attacks each time tension arises in Jerusalem. Although the army has attacked hundreds of Hamas targets in Gaza since launching rockets on the occupation territory, Hamas never raised the white flag.

While the occupation army promised long nights of intense attacks on the Gaza Strip, the Israelis woke up to an unchanged reality on the ground, as there was an escalation in the previous rounds of fighting, after Hamas intensified its attacks and the army stepped up its responses. Judging from past experiences, this strategy will not turn over the balance of power against Hamas, but instead allows it by large to contain the flames.

Hamas realised that it had an opportunity this time to lead the situation in Jerusalem and Gaza in the long term. If the Israeli deterrence is not reclaimed, the Palestinian resistance movement will not be afraid to intervene and threaten to escalate the situation on the ground whenever there is tension in Jerusalem, particularly in Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Hamas's new discourse is distinguishingly bold and reflects sky-high self-confidence. Although no one is interested in another Operation Protective Edge, there is a clear goal that Hamas seeks, which is to incorporate a particular message into the Palestinian collective consciousness.

Even the protests in all Arab cities and towns inside Israel reflect Hamas's new hope for a united Palestinian popular protest front in all regions. Thus, the Jerusalemites have thanked Mohammed Al-Deif and Izz ad-Din Al-Qassam Brigades that stood by them, and unlike Mahmoud Abbas, Hamas never abandoned them. These are the words of Jerusalemites that tell the story of the current escalation round.
