Israeli forces thrust deeper into Jabalia in northern Gaza on Tuesday, striking a hospital and destroying residential areas with tank and air bombardments, residents said, while Israeli airstrikes killed at least five people in Rafah in the south.

Simultaneous Israeli assaults on the northern and southern edges of the Gaza Strip this month have caused a new exodus of hundreds of thousands of people fleeing their homes, and sharply restricted the flow of aid, raising the risk of famine.

Israeli authorities seized broadcasting equipment from the Associated Press and blocked the outlet’s live feed of Gaza. The move is part of a crackdown on media in Israel. The White House expressed concern over the theft of the American outlet’s equipment. The AP reports the Israeli government later ordered the cameras to be returned to the journalists, and the feed was restored. 

A decision made by International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor Karim Khan to seek an arrest warrant for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the country's Defense Minister Yoav Gallant was an attempt 'to demonize Israel,' Netanyahu told ABC television channel.

"He's saying we're starving people?" the Israeli prime minister said in an interview with the US-based television channel. "We have supplied half million tons of food and medicine with 20,000 trucks. This guy is out to demonize Israel."

The Jewish State Is Genocidal, But Is Israeli Society Sick, Too? MikeRivero

The IDF (Israel Defense Forces) continues to martyr the Palestinians, as it marches them up and down and across the Via Dolorosa that is the Gaza Strip.

By the time you read this—and as I write—the number of Palestinians murdered, maimed and displaced by The Devil’s agents will be, already is, out of date.

Jump a level of abstraction, from the torrid reality engulfing Palestinians, to meditate upon the meaning of what I just said.

Israel’s horrendous genocide continues unabated while our new foreign secretary Lord Cameron, brought back from the dead as it were (he’s no longer an elected Member of Parliament) and hurriedly created a peer of the realm to give some semblance of legitimacy, struts the international stage and criss-crosses the world’s trouble-spots. So I thought I’d offer a reminder that this guy has form. And I mean bad form. Back in December 2012 I wrote a piece titled Why they call him ‘Agent’ Cameron. It went like this.

Israel's Ben Gvir says he wants to live in Gaza MikeRivero

Itamar Ben Gvir, Israel's far-right national security minister, said Gaza should be under “full Israeli control” and populated with Jewish settlements, suggesting that he himself would move to the war-torn Palestinian enclave.

In an interview with Israeli news outlet Kikar HaShabbat, Ben Gvir said that “encouragement of voluntary emigration” of Palestinians from Gaza was the “last” and “most important step” in achieving Israel’s total occupation.
