Israel escalates war on Gaza
Israel escalated its war on Gaza today, Nov.15, with airstrikes and drone attacks. Palestinian causalities include a number of children. Israeli authorities announced a call-up of 30,000 reservists. There are many media reports of large numbers of Israeli troops heading to the Gaza border.
In Washington D.C., a spokesperson for the State Department indicated that the U.S. will support a ground assault on Gaza and blamed Palestinians for Israel’s attacks. The Israeli military is funded and armed by the U.S.
Palestinian resistance forces are responding. This afternoon, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was moved to a ‘safe place’ in response to the Islamic Jihad – a Palestinian resistance group – hitting Tel Aviv with Iranian-made rockets.
Progressive forces across the U.S. are organizing demonstrations and protests in solidarity with the Palestinian people.
