PARIS — Several International newspapers have highlighted the absence of a clear resolution to Israel’s war on the Gaza Strip, emphasizing that there will be no peace in the region without Israel withdrawing from all occupied territories, and establishing an independent Palestinian state, Al-Ghad reported.اضافة اعلان

French newspaper, Le Monde stated that the aftermath of the war on Gaza after more than 100 days is catastrophic, with no prospect of resolving the crisis, noting the lack of evidence indicating that the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) is moving to a new phase of combat. The newspaper dismissed the possibility that the war’s outcome was going to be mere coincidence, arguing that the IOF was well aware of the significant losses it would face in the strip. Despite this, the IOF took the risk of inflicting severe civilian casualties.

An article published by Foreign Affairs magazine asserted that achieving peace can only happen through Israel ending its occupation of Palestinian territories, arguing that the proposed post-war governance for Gaza is destined for failure unless Israel addresses the broader issue of self-determination and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. Furthermore, the article suggested that to resolve Gaza’s crisis, Israel is required to address the root cause of violence in the Occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Moreover, the British newspaper, The Guardian pointed out in an article that the genocide case filed against Israel in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) highlighted the alarming inadequacy of the international response to the crisis in the strip, noting that the Western logic is weakening, and its persuasive power is diminishing in a multipolar world. While anticipating a possible rejection of the case, the article expected Western countries to bear the cost of losing credibility.

According to the Associated Press (AP), Hamas has accumulated a diverse arsenal of weapons from around the world, despite facing a 17-year blockade. The weaponry includes Iranian sniper rifles, assault rifles from China and Russia, North Korean-manufactured rockets, and Bulgarian-made anti-tank missiles.

Additionally, The Wall Street Journal focused on reports of Houthi targeting American assets in the Red Sea, noting an escalation in attacks following the US-led strikes in Yemen with British forces, suggesting that the Western response has turned the Red Sea into a new focal point in the ongoing tension between the US and Iran-backed groups in the region.
