Israel continues genocide at full scale but faces equally stiff Palestinian resistance

By Harsh Thakor* 

The genocidal attack by the State of Israel and imperialism, mainly Yankee, against the Palestinian people, has escalated at an untold scale. Just between the 6th and the 7th of December, 350 Palestinian people were killed. These figures are escalating while the struggle for Gaza City and Khan Yunis is increasing. The Health Ministry of Gaza stated the 7th of December at 16:00 GMT, that the death-toll was 17,.177 people murdered and more than 46.000 injured due to the Israeli attacks. Last week the bombings against the Jhabalia camp refugee have been intensified, and it is being constantly attacked with hundreds of dead people every day. This is a clear example of war crime and of bombing civilian areas, attacking on daily basis areas with dense population in which most of the murdered people are unarmed women and children. Also numerous studies, including from imperialist media, have proved that most of the territory of Gaza has been damaged due to the bombings.
The examples of massacres of civilians and how Israel attacks not only military targets, are illustrated from the beginning of the attack against the Gaza Strip. One of the most well-known examples are the attacks against convoys of injured people running from the hospitals, or convoys of families running from the war, even if they were following the directives of the Armed Forces of Israel. Recently, there have been reported instances of almost complete elimination of the family of a journalist of Al Jazeera, in total 22 people murdered, including elder people, children, unarmed civilians and the murder of a journalist of Reuters, who was reporting on the genocidal attacks perpetrated against the Palestinian people of Gaza.
This Israeli carnage has not been caused only against the Palestinian people who inhabits Gaza. The but also in the occupied West Bank.. From the 7th of October until the 7th of December 266 Palestinian people have been killed and 3.640 detained. Moreover, from the 7th of October until the 4th of December, there have been e 308 armed attacks by Israeli settlers. In the occupied West Bank the Palestinian resistance has shimmered its flame against the invader and there were several armed clashes near to Jemin.During these months Yankee imperialism has illustrated how it is the main prop of imperialism which is arming and using the State of Israel to wipe out the Arabic people. According to the Security Ministry of Israel, from the 7th of October they have received 10.000 tons of military material from USA. Also Yankee imperialism is protecting Israel from missiles and other attacks launched from Yemen by the Houthies.
The country-selling governments of the Arabic countries are subservient to imperialism and their intentions. For example Saudi Arabia, which is on the side of imperialism, specially protecting Yankee military targets and Israeli territory, and from October have been intercepting missiles launched by the Houthis from Yemen. Despite this, the Palestinian people heroically resists, it doesn’t surrender. Yesterday during the afternoon, the Israeli army admitted five more casualties among their troops, including a son of a military leader, and raising its death-toll to 416, according to the journal Al Mayadeen. The Al-Qassam Brigades recently stated that in between the 4th and the 7th of December they destroyed 135 Israeli military vehicles.

Heroic Palestinian Resistance

During the last week the Palestinian resistance have made several heroical actions against the invaders, causing harsh casualties while they defend their nation. On the Friday 1st of December there was a successful ambush, eliminating 60 Israeli soldiers, and also destroying several vehicles.
Last weekend, the National Front of Resistance of Palestine inflicted massive defeats to the Zionist invader. Al-Qassam Brigades reported they eliminated 10 Zionist soldiers in the eastern axis of the Khan Yunis and attacked Israeli targets, specifically the port of Tel Aviv The Al-Qassam Brigades confirmed the destruction of 28 vehicles, including some tanks. In another action, in between the 5th and the 6th of December, the National Front of Resistance of Palestine eliminated nine Israeli soldiers.
The governments of the Arab nations have shown that they are lackeys of imperialism, but the peoples of these countries are fighting together with the Palestinian people. The most recent attack was from Iraqui groups against the Yankee military base of Ain Al-Asad, being attacked by a drone. These attacks are more frequent from the beginning of the Palestinian counteroffensive on the 7th of October.
The Arabic peoples have shown solidarity with armed actions against the State of Israel, especially in the border of Lebanon, where Hezbollah have attacked several Israeli military targets causing mortal blows. They have carried out attacks for weeks, with several of these attacks in the last days. An anti-tank missile eliminated a Israeli soldier, being confirmed by the Armed Forces of Israel.
While imperialism and its dogs of war have everything at their disposal, the Palestinian people and its National Front continue inflicting lethal blows to the invaders. Irrespective of the technology, bombs and tons of military material being deployed, the will of a people cannot be razed to the ground which is illustrated with the struggle in Jhabalia, Khan Yunis, Gaza City and in the occupied West Bank. Also day after day it is more clear how the imperialists with their lies, to justify the genocide against Palestinian people, trying to divert the attention from the horrendous crimes of the genocidal State of Israel. Neverthless when the Israeli attack started, many people stated Israel in n o time would triumph, but after even more than two months, the flag of Palestinian resistance still waves.

Reason for success of Palestinian Resistance

The successes of the Palestinian National Resistance are because it unleashes out a war of resistance using the methods of the people’s war, like the Viet Cong guerrillas and so many other revolutionary struggles led by the proletariat. The leadership of the Palestinian front, given the extreme conditions of its patriotic cause, mobilizes the masses, systematically builds its own armed forces and defeats the enemy. The Gaza Strip, under their control, is a support base where they build anti-Zionist and anti-imperialist political power, where all politics is guided to combat the invader. The Palestinian guerrilla forces undertake operations on their internal lines within the external lines, the result of the tactic of attracting the Zionist enemy so that it penetrates deeply into the terrain where the resistance dominates, creating opportunities to apply absolute superiority in each combat thanks to a correct policy management, permanent initiative, popular mobilization and prior preparation of the land with its immense network of tunnels. The Palestinians fight quick-decision offensive battles within a protracted war in its strategic defensive stage. All these elements, present in the anti-imperialist struggle of the Palestinian people, are very close to the military line of the classics of the proletariat, especially of Chairman Mao Tse-tung, who formulated the protracted People’s War.
The historical ascendancy f the Palestinian people’s struggle lies not only in their death defying heroism. The Palestinian war of national resistance manifests that the military line of the proletariat is universal. If the Palestinian people can build a kind of support base in such a small and practically urban territory, with a terrain hat is unconducive for traditional guerrilla warfare, besieged or encircled by the most fortified armed forces in the world ,recognized worldwide for their expertise in espionage and “intelligence”, then the revolutionary struggle against imperialism and its lackeys can crystallise anywhere in the world, as long as the masses are mobilized and, relying spark a prolonged People’s War, always riding on a crest.
