Israel’s war on Gaza live: Israeli attack on Gaza school kills dozens | Israeli-Palestinian conflict news

We previously reported that some sources were saying that many gaps remained as ceasefire negotiations between Israel and Hamas, led by key mediators, were set to continue in the Qatari capital, Doha.

The talks come as Israel intensifies its bombardment of Gaza, killing dozens of Palestinians, many of whom have fled to “safe zones.”

Rami Khouri, a leading researcher at the American University of Beirut, says this is Israel’s “failed strategy,” which it has been using “for many months now and for many years.”

The strategy is to “inflict massive and cruel punishment on the Palestinians – killing them, isolating them,” Khouri told Al Jazeera.

“They are doing this on a much larger scale than ever before, eliminating all the mechanisms that could have sustained life in Gaza, hoping that the Palestinians in Gaza would turn against Hamas and push for surrender,” he said. “This has never happened, not just in Gaza… but anywhere in the world.”

“This is standard operating procedure for the Israelis,” Khouri added.

“When people are subjugated, they resist, when people are occupied, they resist… and when people are subjected to genocide, they resist with much greater means.”
