Blinken shocked by high death toll in Gaza

Pro-Israel US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken was shocked at the high number of casualties in Gaza, reports American broadcaster CNN. 

Despite on November 10 condemning the high death toll caused by the Israelis, Blinken has refused to back a cessation of hostilities in the under siege Palestinian territory, arguing that it would only benefit Palestinian militant organisation Hamas. 

Coming back from a nine-day visit to the Middle East, his second time in the region in less than a month, he told reporters that, “Far too many Palestinians have been killed; far too many have suffered these past weeks. And we want to do everything possible to prevent harm to them and to maximize the assistance that gets to them,”. 

Since October 7, over 11,000 Gazans have been killed by Israeli forces in what has been dubbed, “the second Nakba”.

Israel has also been denying Palestinians access to food, water, electricity and medicine supplies in what is a breach of international law. 

Recently, the IDF fired at a UN aid convoy seeking to bring medical supplies to Gaza’s Al-Shifa hospital. Although they managed to reach their destination, they had to take a longer alternative route following the attack. 

The White House stated on November 9 that Israel agreed to cease military operations in parts of North Gaza for four hours daily although tensions in the region are still at boiling point. 

As the Zionist influence in America is huge, Democrat congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, who is of Palestinian origin, was censured by the House. 

Regarding her stifling of her views on November 7, the left-winger said, “I will not be silenced” adding “I am the only Palestinian-American in Congress, and my perspective is needed more than ever,”.
