The situation of Benjamin Netanyahu before the next Israeli elections and the cases of corruption against him motivate him to authorize attacks against Gaza.
The military aviation of the Tel Aviv regime bombed several areas in the Gaza Strip on Monday at a time when Israeli media are talking about an imminent offensive against the Palestinian enclave.
The Israeli army has reported that the target of the bombings has been installations of the Islamic Resistance Movement of Palestine (HAMAS) in the Gaza Strip. The international analyst Koldo Salazar has analyzed the context in which these events have occurred.
Interviewed this same day by the channel HispanTV, Salazar has assured that one of the issues that has to do with the Israeli attacks, two weeks before the elections, are the corruption cases of Netanyahu.
In fact, Israel’s attorney general, Avichai Mandelblit, announced in early 2019 that he will charge the premier with bribery, fraud and breach of trust in three investigations. The analyst has stated that Netanyahu lives in a “delicate” situation before the elections. In addition, he has addressed other issues related to the Israeli attacks in Gaza.
On the other hand, we have to talk about the tour made by (US Secretary of State) Mike Pompeo in the Middle East region, the controversy that has now taken place on the part of (US President) Donald Trump who seems to be ‘the best president of Israel’, who has recognised Israel’s “illegal sovereignty” over the Syrian Golan Heights, the expert added.
In another part of the interview, the analyst has said that if Palestinians defend themselves from the Gaza Strip, they should not be considered as terrorists, which is what the U.S. and its media are trying to suggest.
“What the Palestinians of Gaza are doing, attacking the Israeli territory, is part of the principle of legitimate defense, they are defending their integrity from constant attacks by the Israeli regime,” the interviewee stressed.
