Really, a pox on both their houses. "An eye for an eye and the whole world goes blind," as the saying goes.

I'm a fan of Israel in an historical sense (and Palestine as well), but Netanyahu is a war criminal and should be treated as such.

Israel resumes Gaza attacks as truce expires

with intense bombardment and a ground invasion. Palestinian health authorities deemed reliable by the United Nations say more than 15,000 Gazans have been confirmed killed.

Lately, anyone want try to speak up to stop this genocide will be labelled as anti-Semitism.

Quote: The other two newly released hostages were a brother and sister, Belal and Aisha al-Ziadna, aged 18 and 17 respectively, according to the Israeli prime minister's office. They are Bedouin Arab citizens of Israel and among four members of their family taken hostage while they were milking cows on a farm.

Bedouin Arabs!?!?!? Palestinian on Bedouin???? Is there some history here?

Why did Hamas keep them so long? Nuts.

Predictable.

Short lived, the south is vulnerable and exposed.

Hamas had a opportunity to release all the hostages, save what is left for any future of a Palestinian state, for its people.

It chose to sacrifice any hope the Palestinian people were probably praying for.

There are still IDF prisoners.

The 64 dollar question is will the Hannibal Directive be invoked yet again.

Death cult Hamas broke the truce. Not going to end well for them. - Fighto!

No one broke the truce. It expired.

Hamas had a opportunity to release all the hostages, save what is left for any future of a Palestinian state, for its people. - itsonlyrocknroll

Before the hostage exchanges started Israel had made it clear that it would continue its bombardment and its military incursions into Gaza as soon as the exchanges ended.

The 64 dollar question is will the Hannibal Directive be invoked yet again. - JJE

Hamas already offered to return the bodies if 2 hostages killed by Israeli bombing. Israel refused.

Hamas prioritized the release of elderly and child hostages. I assume the majority of the remaining hostages are either active or reservist military.

The Hannibal Directive was very much invoked on Oct 7th as has been heavily reported by Israeli news, investigations and survivors. A large part of the reason the official Israeli death toll was reduced from 1400 to 1200 was the difficulty of distinguishing the charred remains of Israeli citizens from Hamas fighters killed by IDF ordinance.

There's a lot of pressure domestically for Netanyahu to save the remaining hostages but anyone with half a brain cell can see that the siege on Gaza won't achieve these aims. Worst case scenario is that Israel ends up killing more hostages than Hamas does so they roll out the 'human shields' excuse.

Women, children, Israeli hostages. Collateral damage.

The Israeli regime's war on hospitals and civilians resumes.

The regime and its supporters will claim that it's at war with Hamas and terrorists, but the reality is that it is at war with international law and the multipolar future that BRICS+ represents.

Israel will keep bombing until Gaza is razed!

Truly the Israeli government Is demonically possessed…

Didn’t Hamas kill civilians the other day end break the ceasefire?

Surely, Israel’s bombing campaign killed the Israeli hostages?
