Netanyahu popularity has increased as a result of the decision to attack Islamic Jihad, but this will not last long.
Israeli media emphasized the accuracy of the intelligence obtained and the precision of the missiles used in this week’s key strike, which resulted in the death of four Islamic Jihad officials.
But the reality that the operation involved a terrible massacre seems to be mostly ignored in this reportage.
Some Israeli media sites boasted about the comparatively low number of Palestinian civilian casualties while downplaying the casualties, which included women, children, and medical personnel. Israel was filled with a spirit of festivity, pride, and honor.
As legislative opposition leaders expressed their support for the measures of the Netanyahu administration, a national consensus arose. The operation, according to analysts, may prolong the existence of the troubled administration, which was battling internal conflict and appeared to be about to implode.
Even though Itamar Ben Gvir, the extreme right head of the Jewish Power party, had been abstaining from Knesset proceedings, he was praising the operation, asserting that his pressure had been successful, and highlighting his personal contribution.
Meanwhile, as part of a larger evacuation plan managed by the military, hundreds of Israelis have left their homes in neighborhoods close to Gaza.
Israel has lauded the accomplishments of its military operations, praising the army’s and Shin Bet’s intelligence cooperation as examples. Israel wants to convey to all groups in southern Lebanon, the occupied West Bank, and Gaza that it is omniscient by demonstrating its capability to attack Palestinian leaders even in their own bedrooms.
Due to the organization’s high-profile activities and concept of resistance to the occupation, Israel has a brutal policy of destroying the leadership of Islamic Jihad, as is demonstrated by its targeted murder tactics. Israeli government representatives have repeatedly asked Hamas to stay out of the current conflict.
Even though Gaza fired rockets on Wednesday night, Israel’s slow response seemed to indicate that it no longer had control over how these things turned out.
Egypt, despite its ongoing Gaza mediation efforts, has been harshly critical of the recent strikes on Islamic Jihad, stating that the massacre undermined efforts to establish long-term stability and violated commitments made by Israel at recent conferences in Aqaba, Jordan, and Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. At the same time, Israel has lost Egypt’s support.
In the five months since the establishment of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, many Palestinian factions and regional forces believe that Israel has failed strategically to increase its regional influence and strengthen its national defenses. Additionally, they believe that the deterrent power it once held has significantly diminished.
Israel’s inability to anticipate the ferocity with which the Palestinians will respond to its aggression is another flaw. This week, the authorities in charge of security in Tel Aviv decided to open public bomb shelters and close schools. These additional security, political and financial expenses might provoke Israel to send off a more extensive hostile across numerous fronts, in a bid to recover command over the direction and outcomes of the showdown.
