Israel has formally declared war on Hamas in the aftermath of an unprecedented attack. This declaration is boldly setting the stage for a major military operation in Gaza as fighting continues to rage on Israeli soil.
Saturday was the deadliest day in decades for Israel and came after months of surging violence between Palestinians and Israelis, with the long-running conflict now heading into uncharted and dangerous new territory. Tanks and personnel carriers could be seen on the move near the Israel-Gaza border on Sunday after Hamas (an Islamist militant group) launched an unprecedented and highly coordinated surprise assault this weekend that has so far killed over 700 Israelis, according to a report by CNN.
Hama continued to fire rockets into Israel throughout Sunday. Another Palestinian armed group, called Islamic Jihad, said on Sunday it is holding at least 30 hostages in Gaza.
The mainstream media is already busy with pushing the war propaganda and making sure they point out which side you should be on. The ruling class of the United States, while fear-mongering there isn’t enough money to keep them in power, somehow has plenty of money to join in on the war.
According to a report by CBS News, U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced Sunday that he has ordered American military ships, including an aircraft carrier and additional aircraft, to move closer to the eastern Mediterranean in response to . At least four U.S. citizens were among the more than 700 people killed in Israel amid the Hamas assault, according to a Sunday night statement from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
“Today, in response to this Hamas attack on Israel, and following detailed discussions with President Biden, I have directed several steps to strengthen Department of Defense posture in the region to bolster regional deterrence efforts,” Austin said in a news release.
Austin spoke with Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Sunday “to express support for the people of Israel and to receive updates on Israel’s operation to restore security and safety from Hamas’ terrorist attack,” Pentagon press secretary Brigadier General Pat Ryder said in a statement.
Additionally, Hamas claims to be holding “over 100” Israeli hostages, including high-ranking officers.
Along with the conflict in Ukraine, this has the potential to become a hot third-world war really fast. Stay alert and aware. The U.S. ruling class has been working hard to make sure the slave class will be fighting in the upcoming wars.
