postponement of ground attack on Gaza; A humanitarian pause or dignified retreat!


postponement of ground attack on Gaza; A humanitarian pause or dignified retreat!

For Tel Aviv, backing off from the ground attack on Gaza is considered a “pre-war victory” for Hamas, but it seems less expensive than the second option, which is a ground attack on Gaza. Therefore, America has put the third option, “temporary postponement” on the table.

NOURNEWS- “A ground attack on Gaza is not a one-day picnic”; This short warning is the extract of all the reasons that orders the Israeli army stationed on the border of the Gaza Strip to “back off”.

The sworn and trusted allies of the Zionist regime, led by the United States, have tried in the past days to remind the nervous government and cabinet of “Benjamin Netanyahu” of the consequences of stepping foot in Gaza, and now Tel Aviv is facing one of the most difficult dilemmas. Because regardless of all the reasons, the mere withdrawal of the Zionist regime from ordering a ground attack on Gaza is considered a “Pre-war victory” for Hamas, but it seems far less expensive than the second option, which is a ground attack on Gaza. Maybe it is on this basis that America has put the third option on the table; which is “temporary postponement” which has apparently been accepted by the Israeli regime. Now the question is, why does America want to buy time?!

America's reasons for postponing the ground attack on Gaza

According to what is discussed in the English-language media, “the fate of the Israeli detainees”, “the possibility of new fronts and the expansion of the geography of the war”, “the psychological collapse and lack of concentration of the Zionist regime's military force after the Hamas operation” and “the complex undergrounds of Gaza” It's only part of what Tel Aviv needs to think about before ordering a ground war.

Today, “New York Times” revealed a part of the secret negotiations between US President Joe Biden and the war cabinet of the Israeli regime; According to this media, in that meeting, while recalling the “disastrous decisions of the United States to attack Iraq and launch a long and endless war in Afghanistan”, Biden raised questions for which Netanyahu's armed ministers had no answers; Among other things, what will happen to the hostages?

If new fronts are opened in Lebanon or the West Bank, what situation awaits Israel? How to prevent this ground attack from turning this conflict into a long and attrition war? What is the probability that other countries will open up to this military conflict, even if it is in proxy form? In case of escalation of tensions, who will be responsible for attacks on American positions in the region? Other questions can be added to the list of these questions; Like what a group of retired generals close to the command of the Israeli army raised in a conversation with Netanyahu.

The “Prophet of Rage” warns about the “Trap of ground attack on Gaza”

According to what “Al-Arabiya” published, “Yitzhak Brick”, the retired general of the Zionist regime army, who is known as the “Prophet of Rage” due to the prediction of the possible and surprising operation of Hamas before the “Al-Aqsa storm”, personally discussed the “trap of ground invasion in Gaza” in the meeting with Netanyahu, and the possibility of turning it into a disaster with a high price has warned. “Asharq Al-Awsat” quoted this 75-year-old soldier and wrote: “The proud supporters of the ground attack on Gaza do not know anything about war.” According to him, “If we enter Gaza now, we will not only enter into a regional war with Hezbollah in the north and other areas, but also a front will be opened in the West Bank and tens of thousands of armed Palestinians from the West Bank will attack, and similar attacks are possible. From the Arabs inside Israel as well.”

Internal discord and pressure from hostages’ families

As reported by the Hebrew publication “Israel Hayom”, the differences between Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant have increased over the time and mannerism of the ground attack on Gaza, and part of the cabinet wants to continue the war as if there were no prisoners. That is at the time when the families of the prisoners held by Hamas protested in front of the Israeli President Isaac Herzog's residence and in front of the military headquarters of the Zionist regime in Tel Aviv and demanded that the prisoners be released before any reaction.

The US and Europe playing with subject of hostages like cards

The 212 people who are said to be in the custody of Hamas during the Al-Aqsa Storm operation are the best playing cards in the hands of America, Europe and of course part of the ruling body of the Zionist regime who are against the ground battle. Because “buying time to release the detainees” is the most dignified justification that can legitimize Tel Aviv's possible withdrawal from the ground attack and at the same time leave their hands free for subsequent decisions. European media referred to this trick as “humanitarian pause” and linked it with the presence of American and European officials in Tel Aviv. After US President Joe Biden, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, it is now French President Emmanuel Macron's turn to go to the occupied territories.

The importance of Macron's visit to the region

While it was announced earlier this week that the visit of the French president to Tel Aviv was postponed at Netanyahu's request, it was announced again that Macron will leave for the Middle East on Tuesday. Some analysts linked the initial cancellation of this trip to the Zionist regime's decision to launch a ground attack on Gaza and its possible consequences, evidence of which was also seen in the contact lines of the Zionist regime's army with Gaza, although it was not linked to a large-scale ground operation. Macron's decision to travel to Israel was made while France has shown its full support for Tel Aviv in recent weeks while banning Palestinian supporters' protests by turning on the lights of the Eiffel Tower in the color of the Zionist regime's flag. An approach that makes the always unsuccessful mediator, even if he wants to, not be able to play a role in the release of the detainees or any other development, and witness that the small country of Qatar continues to be the intermediary between Hamas and the Israeli regime in this field.
