Just two weeks ahead of Israeli elections, the far-right Netanyahu Regime bombs and amasses troops along Gaza.
The move is likely meant to garner political support ahead of the upcoming election in which the far-right Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is fighting to maintain control of the country after a decade in power. His election prospects have been complicated by graft allegations and strong challenges from a centrist coalition. Netanyahu is campaigning on a promise of increasing violence against Palestinians.
Israel launched air strikes in Gaza and deployed extra troops to the area, promising a strong response to recent rockets fired out of Gaza. Israeli air strikes on Gaza are common, but Israel’s mobilization of increased troops to the area is unusual.
