“All-Out War” Coming: Record Number of Israeli Tanks Amassed on Gaza Border – Astute News
UN envoy Mladenov also confirmed before the UN that Gaza’s economy is in free fall, with unemployment at a stunning 53% and 70% of Palestinian youth jobless (according to the World Bank), and further the coastal strip of 2 million people is under near total Israeli blockade. “Gaza is imploding. This is not hyperbole. This is not alarmism. It is a reality,” Mladenov told the UN Security Council.
“Barring substantial steps to reverse the current course, this precarious sense of calm is doomed to give way under the mounting pressure. It is already beginning to fray,” he added.
It appears tensions could explode into yet another round of war starting as early as this weekend. Given the threats of Israeli officials this week, it could slide into the bloodiest campaign in years.
