Israel: Washington calls for peace
Second aircraft carrier sent to eastern Mediterranean to stem conflict
The United States is strengthening its diplomatic action to avoid an escalation in the Middle East between Israelis and Palestinians. The aim is to prevent the ongoing conflict from exploding and directly involving neighboring countries. A signal that Washington clarified by sending a second aircraft carrier to the eastern Mediterranean yesterday, as a "deterrence" in defense of Tel Aviv and to confine tensions, cutting off other actors.
The situation "is really, really difficult" but "there has to be a vision. I think that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu would do well not only to say what he will try to do to Hamas, but realistically also talk about the future of Gaza and a future for the Palestinian people after the conflict", was the comment of American General David Petraeus, interviewed by the American television broadcaster "CBS".
In short, according to Washington, in the event of a possible ground operation on the Gaza Strip to eliminate Hamas militiamen, Israel will in any case have to have a post-war vision. Yesterday, American President Joe Biden warned Israel that reoccupying Gaza would be a "big mistake" and in the meantime he had a telephone conversation with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, who was about to leave for the Middle East, where the German leader will visit Israel and Egypt tomorrow.
