Blinken negotiates his administration’s conditions in light of the most violent “Israeli” escalation

The Gaza Strip is experiencing battles that have turned it into a ball of flames as a result of the heaviest bombing by the “Zionist entity” army, which is accompanied by a land and sea blockade, cutting off all means of communication with the outside, and direct targeting of the vicinity of hospitals.

This escalation is considered the most violent since the beginning of Operation “Al-Aqsa Flood” on October 7 of last month.

This bombing coincided with the end of the tour of US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, whose plane landed in the Jordanian capital, Amman, the day before yesterday to participate in the meeting hosted by the Kingdom of Jordan, in which the foreign ministers of Egypt, the Emirates, Qatar and Palestine participated, and he was counting on its results.

According to the terms set by the ministers of these countries, which emphasize stopping the ongoing war in the Gaza Strip, civil protection for the residents of the Strip, refusing to displace them, demanding an immediate ceasefire, and rejecting the description of what the entity did in self-defense, at a time when Blinken stressed the release of American citizens and all hostages and “support for Israel’s right to defend itself against Hamas and his indication that the ceasefire now will enable Hamas to reorganize its ranks and repeat attacks.”

What the US Secretary of State said indicates the extent of the US administration’s insistence on its support for Israel, which was translated into practice on the ground through the intensification of the Israeli strikes on the Gaza Strip, which coincided with warnings to the people of the Gaza Strip in the northern part and giving them a deadline of several hours to exit towards the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

It appears, according to a source following the course of the recent American talks, especially the meeting between Blinken and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, that the fourth American envoy’s visit has entered a new direction in light of the smoke rising from the entire Gaza Strip. after the media leaks that talked about Blinken’s suggestion to Abbas that the Palestinian Authority should play a pivotal role in what comes next in Gaza, this is what the source considered an indication of the search for a new administration for the Strip in the event that Hamas is isolated. However, the data that emerged from this meeting indicate that President Abbas requires a comprehensive political solution.

 

The source points out that the Egyptian position represented by the words of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, a week after the beginning of the battles in the Gaza Strip, rejecting the opening of the Rafah crossing in preparation for transferring the Palestinians to Sinai, considering that the matter constitutes “the liquidation of the Palestinian cause and the displacement of Palestinians from Gaza to Egypt, which will be followed by their displacement from the West Bank to Jordan,” he scattered the maps and plans to empty the Gaza Strip, which Benjamin Netanyahu, who rejected the idea of a two-state solution, was seeking.

The source ends his speech with two hypotheses. The first is to impose a new reality, which is to place the Gaza Strip under international or regional administration if the Zionist entity is able to destroy the entire Gaza Strip for the Palestinians, or that the entity will yield to the demand for a ceasefire if the Palestinian factions are able to impose their equation, through qualitative operations against the so-called “invincible army.”
