Dubai: What began as a routine Israeli security operation on August 1 in a Palestinian town in the West Bank descended into a full-blown conflict within days. By Sunday night, the death toll on the Palestinian side had risen to 44, including 15 children, and a surprise ceasefire brokered by Egypt brought welcome relief to war-weary Gazans.

The Israeli military’s ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ targeted the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) group, which is backed by Iran and headquartered in the Syrian capital, Damascus. But the goal of a “quick, clean war” that minimizes civilian suffering and maximizes damage to PIJ confined to the Gaza Strip may elude Israel if a cease-fire agreement fails.

Racial Reckoning Is Shifting Us Public Opinion On Palestine

The Secretary General of the PIJ, Ziad al-Nakhlah, who recently visited Tehran to meet with Iranian leaders, warned that all Israeli towns, including Tel Aviv, could be subject to rocket attacks, as well as other Palestinian factions. Strongly urged to join the forces. For days, Israeli media showed rockets and interceptors from the Iron Dome missile defense system lighting up the skies over southern and central Israel.

As expected, parallels are being drawn between the recent outbreak and the 11-day conflict in May 2021 that killed more than 200 Palestinians and 12 Israelis. The biggest difference this time is that Hamas, the Palestinian group that controls the Gaza Strip, has not joined the fray, a move that cannot be ruled out if the ceasefire fails and civilian casualties continue to mount.

As always when Israel launches attacks against Palestinian terrorists, the civilian population of Gaza, under siege by the military, has paid the highest price. Images of half-destroyed buildings and damaged belongings of poor civilians completely contradict Israel’s official description of the attack as a “counter-terrorist operation against an immediate threat” presented by PIJ.

Why Israel Is Trying To Criminalise Palestinian Civil Society

An Israeli airstrike sent flames out of a building in Gaza City on Saturday, and injured Palestinians were evacuated by medics. Gaza’s health ministry said the dead included “a five-year-old girl who was targeted by the Israeli occupation.” “This is not Ukraine! Yesterday was the #Gaza Strip!” Jessica, a Palestinian, tweeted with four photos of the devastation under the hashtag #GazaUnderAttack.

Abdullah al-Arashi summed up the collective plight of Palestinians in Gaza in an interview with AFP: “The country has been destroyed. We have had enough war. “Our generation has lost its future.” This is a reference to the numerous wars and conflicts between Israel and Hamas since 2007, which have cost the two million Palestinians in the Gaza Strip a great price.

Egypt, whose mediation has helped end many bombings in Gaza in the past, reportedly sent a delegation of officials to Israel to mediate once again. The PIJ leadership may not have been in a negotiating mood, but their options were limited.

The group lost its second senior commander, Khalid Mansour, on Saturday when Israeli forces attacked a house in the Rafah refugee camp in southern Gaza. Earlier in the day, PIJ acknowledged the death of senior leader Taysir al-Jabari in an airstrike on a building in western Gaza City.

The 2019 killing of al-Jabari’s ancestor, Baha Abu al-Ata, by Israeli forces in the Gaza Strip sparked a five-day conflict in which 34 Palestinians, including many PIJ fighters, were killed, and 111 were wounded. Israel then, as now, claimed that the PIJ was planning an imminent attack.

This time, Israel said it planned to attack southern Israel in retaliation for the August 1 arrest of Bassem al-Saadi, a senior member of the West Bank’s PIJ political faction, by PIJ militants in the Gaza Strip during the Jenin-security operation. was made . Al-Saadi had been living there since February 2013, when he was released from an Israeli prison after serving two years in prison.

Jenin has been a frequent target of Israeli arrest operations in the West Bank since deadly Palestinian attacks on Israel in late March.

“It appears that Israel acted on intelligence reports that the PIJ would carry out several attacks against Israel,” said Mir Javadanfar, a Middle East professor and lecturer. An analyst from Reichman University told Arab News.

“According to this thesis, it will be difficult for Israel to survive this action. “If you know the enemy is going to attack, you take away the initiative, and it completely changes the situation for them.”

But Israel’s reasoning failed to convince not only Palestinian civilians in the line of fire, but also critics of the first-strike military doctrine, including the UN Special Rapporteur on the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

“I condemn Israel’s airstrikes on Gaza, aimed at preventing Islamic Jihad’s retaliation for the arrest of its leader,” Francesca Albanese said on Twitter on Saturday. International law only allows the use of force in self-defense, so Operation Breaking Dawn was clearly an act of aggression. Illegal. unethical Irresponsible.”

Israel Hamas War Shows Divides In Ri Politics Between Politicians And Staff

In addition to the diplomatic setback, the Israeli government led by Yair Lapid, a politician with no military experience or experience in high-level security positions, will soon face a worsening humanitarian situation in Gaza.

Since the May 2021 war, there has been little reconstruction in Gaza, with the population mired in poverty and unemployment at around 50%. Israel has cut off traffic to the area and reports on Saturday said the only power plant there had shut down after Israel cut off possible fuel supplies.

Mayor of Gaza Yahya Al Sarraj said that the lack of electricity is affecting municipal services. “This (peak consumption period in July and August) will reduce domestic water supply,” he said. “Since the plant is not functioning properly, untreated sewage will leak into the sea.”

Of course, the possibility of a propaganda coup against PIJ supporters in Tehran is not lost. Iran’s Fars news agency quoted President Ibrahim Raisi as saying: “The resistance of the people of Gaza will hasten the fall of the (Zionist) regime that is killing children.”

Separately, in comments reported by Iran’s state TV on Saturday, General Hossein Salami, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, said, “The Israelis will pay another heavy price for the crimes committed recently.”

Earlier, Iran’s Tasnim news agency quoted Salami as saying: “In Lebanon, thousands, over a million missiles are ready to be launched to create hell for the Zionists once God’s plan is realized.”

Javadanfar believes the PIJ-Iran alliance is the second reason Israel decided to crack down on the group. “Considering that the Israeli attack took place while the head of the PIJ was in Tehran, the Iranian context for the current action cannot be ignored,” he told Arab News.
