Israel's brutal military campaign unleashed after Gaza strip attack

Roots of violence and ongoing strife between Israel and Hamas


In the midst of escalating tensions between Israel and Hamas, the recent attack near the Gaza Strip has intensified an already volatile situation.

According to Al Jazeera, the conflict, marked by violence and failed peace attempts, reveals a deep-seated rift between the two parties.

Israel, alongside its Western allies, has long dismissed Hamas as a "terrorist organization." The recent attack has led to a brutal military campaign, resulting in a significant loss of life and the displacement of Gaza's population.

Contrary to the prevailing narrative, Hamas has a history of proposing truces and ceasefires. Since its founding in 1987, the group has made several attempts to negotiate with Israel, offering truces in exchange for the realization of a sovereign independent Palestinian state.

In 2017, Hamas revised its original 1988 charter, recognizing a two-state solution and acknowledging Israel's legitimacy. Despite this move, Israel dismissed it as "lies," highlighting the deep-seated distrust between the two parties.

The recent rejection by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of a Hamas proposal for ending the conflict underscores the ongoing challenges. Netanyahu refused the offer, demanding the withdrawal of Israeli forces, release of Palestinian prisoners, and recognition of Hamas governance over Gaza.

Analysts argue that the core problem goes beyond the immediate conflict in Gaza. The failure of the Oslo Accords, ongoing settlement projects, and the lack of progress towards an independent Palestinian state contribute to the broader discontent.

The Israel-Hamas conflict remains a complex and deeply rooted issue, with a history marked by violence and missed opportunities for peace. The rejected truce proposals underscore the challenges of finding common ground.

As the world watches the latest developments, the path to a sustainable resolution seems elusive, with both sides entrenched in their positions.
