Israel Accuses “Assad Regime”, Iran’s Quds Force Of Gaza Escalation, Kicks Off New Round Of Airstrikes

Donate

The exchange of strikes between the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine (IJMP) and the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), which started in the Gaza Strip late on October 26, continued on October 27.

According to the IDF, another barrage of projectiles was launched from Gaza at the Eshkol Regional Council. There were no confirmed reprots about casualties or damage caused by this strike. However, the IDF already announced that its forces are attacking “terror” targets within the Gaza Strip.

It’s also interesting to note that Israel accused the “Assad regime” and Iran’s Quds Force of being behind the recent escalation in Gaza. While the Quds Force is indeed a special forces unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps responsible for extraterritorial operations, it still remains unclear how the Damascus government deeply involved in counter-terrorism operations across its own country could be behind any tensions in Gaza.

Furthermore, the Israeli side “forgot” to mention that this round of escalation started after dozens of Palestinians were killed or injured by the IDF during a weekly protests at the Gaza separation fence. These weekly protests have already ongoing for a few months since the US administration recognized Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and declared its full support for all Israeli actions in the long-standing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

In fact, the increased US support to Israel contributed to the escalation in the region because it allowed the Tel Aviv leadership to employ force more freely in order to crack down on the Palestinain resistance to its actions.
