The U.S. is closely monitoring the probe into a deadly Israeli airstrike it called tragic, but it said the recent deaths in Rafah didn't constitute a major ground operation there that crosses any red lines. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2024/05/29/world/politics/us-rafah-deaths-israel/

"Three More Nations Roll Out the Red Carpet to Hamas | Opinion"

"Welcome to the State of Denial. You've arrived in an alternative reality where terrorists have become heroes valiantly battling oppressors, genocidal slogans are triumphant calls for freedom, and the natural response to a terror group that slaughtered 1,200 people and took another 250 hostages is to offer them a state."

>> 3 More Nations Roll Out Red Carpet to #Hamas

Hamas and #Likud have a perverse incentive to keep the war in the #MiddleEast going, at least for now.

NEITHER wants it to be over. #Netanyahu has been signaling transparently that he wants #Biden to lose because #Trump would give #Bibi more latitude in “clearing” #Gaza upon his re-election.

Many independent voters in US also want that outcome because #US & #UK also want to put pressure on Netanyahu ➡️ https://mastodon.social/@Alon/111852962999108976

The Spanish, Irish & Norwegian govts announced Wed that they would recognize a #Palestinian state, saying there would be no #peace in the #MiddleEast w/o it.
Israel denounced the move as giving aid to its enemy #Hamas.
The coordinated announcements are purely symbolic — but not w/o some power.
