US Senator: The Israeli raids on Gaza tell us the need for a ceasefire

The prominent US Senator Elizabeth Warren said today, Sunday, that the Israeli raids that destroyed the headquarters of international media and killed innocent civilians in Gaza indicate the need to negotiate an immediate ceasefire between the Israeli and Palestinian sides.

"The Israeli air strikes that have destroyed global media and killed innocent civilians in Gaza tell us what we already know, which is the need for Israel to work with negotiators for an immediate ceasefire," Warren wrote on her Twitter page, adding that "the states must." The United States actively supported those efforts. "

This comes with the continuing violent military confrontations, which began last Monday, and left about 150 Palestinian martyrs in the Gaza Strip, including dozens of children and women, in addition to more than 1,100 wounded, in addition to material losses and massive destruction in the Strip, while 11 Israelis were killed as a result of the bombing operations. Carried out by the Palestinian factions in response to the Israeli aggression.

The military confrontations began after great tensions in occupied Jerusalem against the background of the Israeli authorities' decision to evacuate Palestinian citizens from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood and storm Al-Aqsa Mosque, which led to widespread protests that witnessed the use of excessive force by the Israeli forces against the demonstrators.

Israeli practices sparked widespread protests in many cities inhabited by a large number of Palestinians, including Lod, Haifa and Acre, and the Israeli authorities and Jewish extremists suppressed these protests on several occasions.

Last Friday, at least 10 Palestinians were killed by bullets from the occupation forces during the demonstrations that roamed several areas in the West Bank to protest the situation in Gaza and occupied Jerusalem.

The Israeli military operations in Gaza provoked angry reactions yesterday, after the Israeli army bombed the Madani tower that housed a number of media offices, including the "Associated Press" news agency, in a move considered by the New York Committee to Protect Journalists aimed at cutting off coverage of Israeli practices in Sector.
