Explained: Israel-Palestine And A History Of Conflict

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised to completely destroy the strongholds of Hamas in Gaza, reducing them to nothing, because the fighting wasn’t stopping.

It started when the Hamas group fired many rockets and attacked from the ground, air, and sea. In response, Israel launched strong airstrikes.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised to completely destroy the powerful areas of Hamas in Gaza, reducing them to rubble, as the fighting continued without slowing down.

This comes after months of increasing violence in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with the most casualties in the West Bank, an area occupied by Israel since the 1967 Arab-Israeli conflict. This is one of the deadliest incidents in years.

Hamas, a Palestinian group, said they were behind the rocket attack on Israel and claimed they fired over 5,000 rockets.

We’ve decided to stop all the actions by the occupation (Israel). They can’t do whatever they want without consequences anymore, said the military group Hamas, in a statement. We started Operation Al-Aqsa Flood and we’ve already launched more than 5,000 rockets in the first 20 minutes.

Israeli officials stated that Hamas launched many rockets at Israel, and Palestinian militants entered Israeli territory in several places. The Israeli army warned that Hamas would be held responsible for these actions and face the consequences.

Simplifying the Background of History

After World War I, Britain took charge of Palestine, where there were more Arabs than Jews.

The world asked Britain to make a new home for Jewish people in Palestine, and this made the people who were already living there very upset.

During the 1920s and 1940s, a lot of Jewish people came to Palestine because they were escaping from being mistreated in Europe and looking for a new place to live after the Holocaust.

In 1947, there was a lot of tension between Jews and Arabs in Palestine, and they didn’t like the British rule. The United Nations decided to split Palestine into two parts, one for Jewish people and one for Arab people, and they wanted to put Jerusalem under international control. The Jewish leaders agreed with this plan, but the Arab leaders said no, and it never happened.

In 1948, the British left, and Jewish leaders said, We have our own country now, Israel. But many Palestinians didn’t like that idea, so they fought. Other Arab countries joined in the fight. Lots of Palestinians had to leave their homes, and they call this time The Catastrophe.

War And Peace

Over time, Israel and Palestine have had many conflicts, some small and some very big, resulting in the loss of thousands of lives.

In 1987, Hamas was created by a Palestinian cleric named Sheikh Ahmed Yassin. It started as a political group with military power and was linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is a global Sunni Islamist organization.

The two Palestinian uprisings, called intifadas, had a big impact on how Israelis and Palestinians interacted with each other. The second intifada, in particular, stopped the peace talks of the 1990s and led to more conflict. Both of these uprisings had the group Hamas involved in them.

In the year 2000, US President Bill Clinton organized a meeting at Camp David. He invited Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat to discuss important issues, but unfortunately, they couldn’t reach an agreement. This made the relationship between Israel and Palestine even worse.
