The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) can create a situation in the Gaza Strip similar to the tragedy in the Japanese city of Hiroshima, but without the use of nuclear weapons. American journalist Seymour Hersh writes about this with reference to a source familiar with the IDF’s plans.
“Gaza City is in the process of becoming Hiroshima without the use of nuclear weapons,” writes Hersh on his blog (quote from RIA Novosti).
With reference to his interlocutor, he also notes that Israel intends to launch a ground operation in the Gaza Strip in order to implement the plan of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and destroy all members of the Palestinian group Hamas.
October 15 Hersh citing sources wrotethat the Israeli army wants to “raze” Gaza and the areas north of the city. In this regard, the military plans to use American guided bombs with JDAM, known as “bunker busters.”
On October 7, the Palestinian group Hamas attacked Israel. Against the backdrop of the militant attack, the IDF launched Operation Iron Swords, and the country went into a state of war. Since the conflict has escalated, the Israeli military has regularly carried out attacks on targets in the Gaza Strip that are associated with Hamas.
According to the latest data, over 3,000 Palestinians and 1,400 Israelis have died as a result of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
