Israeli War Council minister, Gadi Eisenkot has said that Israel is lying to itself and it is time for a ‘grand deal’ to end the war and bring prisoners back. 

This is only one of many elements of pressure placed on Netanyahu to abandon his losing war on Gaza, which, at its 101st day failed to achieve any of Israel’s objectives. 

This failure is a direct out of Palestinian Resistance on the ground. 

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 23,968 Palestinians have been killed, and 60,582 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7. Palestinian and international estimates say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.
