#ISRAELHAMASWAR. Launches on Israel from Lebanon increase as the Jewish holiday of Shavuot begins


Secretary of State Blinken is in the Middle East to promote the ceasefire plan: the State Department announced this. President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said regarding two states or one state: “Azerbaijan’s position is clear. It is necessary to create an independent Palestinian state, with East Jerusalem as its capital. Today’s tragedy in Gaza must be stopped as soon as possible, the war must be stopped and all problems must be resolved through negotiations. I told President Sisi that we support Egypt’s efforts in these areas and that the initiatives put forward by Egypt must be taken into consideration.”

Australian Greens leader Adam Bandt has urged Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s government to put more pressure on Israel to end the war in Gaza.

For Dutch politician Geert Wilders, the words of Dutch army commander Ono Eichelsheim are wrong. The reference is to the phrase: “Israel uses disproportionate force to achieve its objectives”, referring to the operation to free the kidnapped people. “Incomprehensible, inappropriate and wrong comment. If I were the Minister of Defense, I would call him to order and correct him on this matter,” Wilders wrote.

A press release issued by the press office of the resistance committees in Palestine reads: “The criminal positions of the American administration, in particular of Secretary of State Blinken, represent a real obstacle to reaching an agreement to stop the war of genocide and of massacres against our people in the Gaza Strip. The resistance will not give up under any pressure and its position is firm. The basis for any agreement is to stop the aggression and massacres committed by the Zionist-American enemy in Gaza. Blinken’s recent statements indicate that the American administration still continues to try to deceive world public opinion, and it was precisely the one that applauded the attack on Nuseirat.”
