U.S. Approved Israeli Attack On Gaza’s Rafah In Exchange For Canceling Strikes On Iran - Report

Egyptian officials told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed on April 18 that the United States had approved Israel’s plan for an operation in the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, in return for not carrying out a large strike in Iran in response to Tehran’s unprecedented missile and drone attack.

“The American administration showed acceptance of the plan previously presented by the occupation government regarding the military operation in Rafah, in exchange for not carrying out a large-scale attack against Iran,” the official told the Qatari-owned news outlet.

The unnamed official added that preparations are underway so that Egypt can deal with any possible impact of the planned operation.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) launched more than 300 missiles and drones at Israel over the night of April 13 and 14 in response to an Israeli strike that targeted Iran’s embassy in the Syrian capital, Damascus, at the beginning of the month and killed a number of its senior members.

Israel has vowed to respond, without saying when or how, while its allies have called on both sides to avoid further escalation.

The Israeli military has been preparing to launch an operation in Rafah for the last few months. More than 1,5 million Palestinains are said to be taking shelter in the city and its surroundings. Objection from the U.S. and other allies has been hindering an Israeli decision on the operation.

While Al-Araby Al-Jadeed’s report suggests that Israel would cancel a retaliatory strike against Iran in exchange for a green light to attack Rafah, other reports indicate that the Israeli military is still determined to respond to the unprecedented attack by the IRGC.

However, Israel is unlikely to carry out a strike on Iran before the end of Passover, a U.S. official told ABC News on April 18 while acknowledging the timing could change. The Jewish holiday begins on April 22 evening and runs through the end of the month.

The news network also quoted Israeli sources as saying Israel twice readied for and then dropped plans to strike Iran this past week

Senior Iranian officials, including President Ebrahim Raisi, have already warned Israel that any strike on the country’s territory will be met with a very harsh response. The U.S. was also warned by Tehran against taking part in any Israeli attack.

you’re absolutely right. there are 25 jews / zionists in top positions in bidens cabinet. this is totally out of proportion to their number in the general population…6 million out of 330 million (1.8%) but as we know there are also plenty of non-jews in the us government and deep state who are pro-zionist.

us navy intercepted 50% of the iranian ballistic missiles us,france,uk,jordan air forces intercepted majority of drones and cruise missiles. the israelis intercepted a minority of the iranian targets. in other words

israel is weak without the strongest nato militaries defending it. their defenses would be overwhelmed.

jordanian faggots saved the day for the kikes

well in their defense, western powers are shells of their former selves especially the uk. and the technological gap has not only been narrowed but eliminated in many fields including missiles, electronic warfare, quantum computing etc.

kikes are flighty cowardly cracker whites. supported by the anglo scum. whites are trash.

an entire us and french naval fleet in red sea with aegis sm-3, 100 usaf, uk raf, jordanian af, french af fighter jets jordanian patriot batteries, and us thaad batteries

all repelled the iranian attack for the most part. israelis barely participated in repelling it.

and yet still, iranian ballistic missiles made it through and hit nevatim and ramon.

without usa, uk, france, jordan, the pissraeli kikes are defenseless. parasites that control their hosts to defend them

IMHO

bullshit.

houthies can’t hit shit with their missiles, iran can’t hit shit with their missiles, hezbolah can’t hit shit with their missiles.

israel doesn’t need to retaliate.

besides, iran is just playing their part.

in other words pa-murika told its maladjusted violent teenager, izzy, to beat up on the innocent defenceless kid in a wheelchair next door.

because if izzy tried to hit the big kid that smacked it in the mouth at the weekend (in return for izzy breaking that kid’s skateboard) useless izzy would only end up in hospital, probably along with its dad…

what nonsense, idf was going to hit, had hit and in future is going to carry on the zionist genocide in rafah crossing. permission was offered nor asked!

Jonny B G

is laughable and a sad joke to assume there is a usa government decision and saying when it comes to israel. we have become, since last century their bias, blind and submissive zionist clown,colony, puppet and proxy. they own our banks, economy, media, judicial system and most of our military complex. they own us.
