While the Americans insist that they are seeking calm and stability in the Middle East, they carried out a major strike, which killed a top commander in the Iraqi army.

Meanwhile, deliberation regarding the Hamas’ response to the ceasefire proposal continues. Though Netanyahu insists that he wants to destroy the Resistance, his options are becoming more limited by the day.

Hamas and other Resistance groups are fighting on all fronts, and it seems that they are ready to fight for many more months to come.

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 27,840 Palestinians have been killed, and 67,317 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7.
