The “Israeli” aggression on the Gaza Strip entered its 226th day, amidst internal disagreement ripping apart the “Israeli” War Cabinet.

Members of the war cabinet exchanged accusations and harsh criticisms, as Benny Gantz said Yesterday in an anticipated press conference that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lacks a clear strategy for the war in Gaza.

Gantz stated that Yahya Sinwar, the head of Hamas in Gaza, is sabotaging the ceasefire and prisoner exchange negotiations as “he lives in the tunnels while Israel lives under pressure” – per his expression.

Gantz declared that the latest ceasefire proposal, which was accepted by Hamas, is constructive and can be developed and built on.

He gave Netanyahu an ultimatum to come up with a clear strategy for the war and the “day-after” in Gaza by June 8, else he will withdraw from the war cabinet.

Hebrew Channel 12 reported that Benny Gantz held secret meetings in several Arab capitals before holding his press conference tonight.

Gantz also confronted Netanyahu on his strategy for dealing with Hezbollah in the north, giving him another ultimatum to ensure the return of displaced “Israeli” settlers to the north by September 1.

He also proposed an Arab-European coalition to rule Gaza in the “day-after”.
