Borrell suggests US deliver fewer weapons to Israel

The head of European diplomacy Josep Borrell suggested on Monday that the United States should deliver fewer weapons to Israel if they believe that there are too many deaths on the Palestinian side.

“If you think too many people are being killed, maybe you should provide fewer guns to prevent so many people from being killed. Isn’t that logical? “, he declared to the press, referring to statements by American President Joe Biden deeming the Israeli response to Gaza “excessive”.

“Everyone goes to Tel Aviv begging, please don’t do this, protect civilians, don’t kill so many people,” Mr. Borrell said after a meeting of the development ministers of the European Union (EU). But Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “doesn’t listen to anyone,” he added.

“They are going to evacuate” the Palestinians. ” Or ? On the moon ? “, he asked again, in reference to the offensive announced by Israel in the south of the Gaza Strip where hundreds of thousands of Palestinians are refugees.

On Monday, the Court of Appeal in The Hague ordered the Netherlands to stop the export of F-35 parts to Israel, ruling that there was “a clear risk that serious violations of the humanitarian law of war are committed in the Gaza Strip” with Israeli F-35 fighter jets.

He expressed feelings of “panic” over the Israeli army’s planned operation in southern Gaza.

“We are talking about 5% of the population who were killed, injured or missing, or more than 100,000 people out of a population of two million, and in just four months,” he said.

Asked about the future prospects of this agency that Israel wants to see dismantled after accusations of complicity with Hamas, Mr. Lazzarini affirmed that the end of UNWRA operations “would deprive half a million children of education. in Gaza”, and would affect more than five million Palestinian refugees in Israel, Lebanon and Jordan.

The war in Gaza erupted when Hamas sent 3,000 armed terrorists into Israel on October 7 to carry out a brutal attack in which they killed nearly 1,200 people. The terrorists also took 253 people hostage, mostly civilians, and took them to Gaza. Israel responded by launching a military campaign aimed at destroying Hamas, removing it from power in Gaza and freeing the hostages.

More than 28,000 people are believed to have died in Gaza since the start of the war, according to the Health Ministry run by Hamas terrorists. The figures released by the terrorist group are unverifiable, and are believed to include its own terrorists and gunmen killed in Israel and Gaza, and civilians killed by the hundreds of rockets fired by the terrorist groups that fall inside the Strip. from Gaza. The Israeli military claims to have killed more than 10,000 members of the terrorist group in Gaza, in addition to a thousand terrorists inside Israel on October 7.
