Gaza road map doesn’t stop Rafa firestorm

(The Australian, 3/6/2024)

There are still innocents alive so no way will Israel stop the Genocide till ALL Palestinians are dead or displaced – Mark

Israeli forces continued to hammer Rafah in southern Gaza at the weekend, only hours after US President Joe Biden said Israel was offering a new road map ¬towards a full ceasefire.
Shortly after Mr Biden’s announcement, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insisted his country would pursue the war until it had achieved all its aims.
“Israel’s conditions for ending the war have not changed: the ¬destruction of Hamas’s military and governing capabilities, the freeing of all hostages and ensuring that Gaza no longer poses a threat to Israel,” Mr Netanyahu said.
Hamas said it “views positively” the Israeli plan laid out by Mr Biden on Saturday.
In his first major address outlining a possible end to the nearly eight-month war, Mr Biden said ¬Israel’s three-stage offer would begin with a six-week phase in which Israeli forces would withdraw from all populated areas of Gaza.
“It’s time for this war to end, for the day after to begin,” he said.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken called his counterparts from Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Turkey to press the deal.
UN chief Antonio Guterres “strongly hopes” the latest development “will lead to an agreement by the parties for lasting peace”, a spokesman said.
German Foreign Minister ¬Annalena Baerbock said the offer provided “a possible path out of the war’s deadlock”, while EU chief Ursula von der Leyen welcomed a “balanced and realistic” approach to end the bloodshed.
