Gaza, 14 October 2023 (TDI): A recent assessment by an Israeli analyst on Israeli TV Channel 13 has brought into focus the complex and evolving dynamics of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
In a candid appraisal, the analyst stated that even if Gaza was disowned from its very existence, Israel has been losing this battle from the very beginning.
The only thing Israel has gained is a government coalition. A group of young people in Gaza inflicts financial losses, casualties, and injuries on us by the thousands.
It is pertinent to note that the longstanding dispute between Israel and Palestine took a perilous turn, with the recent escalation marking one of the most substantial and deadly confrontations in decades.
In the early hours of Saturday, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades of Hamas launched ‘Operation Al-Aqsa Storm’ against Israel. This attack involved coordinated actions, including infiltrations at multiple points and a barrage of missiles targeting Israel.
This development comes amidst escalating tensions over the Al-Aqsa Mosque and ongoing concerns about the Israeli occupation.
He went on to say, ‘They impose curfews, close airports, and kidnap prisoners with ease as if they were on a trip. They infiltrate as if they are playing a video game. They know the streets better than their inhabitants.’
Furthermore, the analysts questioned, ‘Where is the money paid to the soldiers? Why do they receive high salaries? Where are the advanced weapons and technology? It is better to leave them prisoners in Gaza. They are a shame for our army.’
He highlighted that from its establishment until today, Israel has not faced a defeat like this. The rockets increase, and the number of casualties among the Israeli forces increases every day.
He questioned that ‘How did they manage to reach the Negev and Ashdod on motorcycles? Where is the Gaza Brigade? Where are the elite soldiers? How did they land by parachute without being detected?
How did they penetrate the security system and hack the codes? We should be ashamed of ourselves. Killing civilians will not bring victory.’
Moreover, the residents of the south will leave, and the young men, whose families were devastated in previous wars, will liberate their homeland.
In the end, he stated that, ‘They have come today for revenge, and we must pay the price. We are defeated even if all the countries in the world support us because these Palestinian fighters love death as much as we love life.’
