This week in IndiaTheNews News Network’s special program Shaurya Path, we wanted to know from Brigadier Shri DS Tripathi (Retd) what is the latest situation in the Israel and Hamas conflict? In response, he said that the manner in which Israel and Hamas have agreed to extend the ceasefire by one more day at the last minute shows that both sides are only interested in the release of hostages and arms and equipment for the next phase of the war. Engaged in collecting goods. He said that the second phase of this fight could be more deadly because Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is facing political challenges on the domestic front. He said that Netanyahu is under pressure to safely bring back the hostage Israelis and eliminate Hamas, so he will have to achieve this goal at any cost. He said that the people of Gaza will have to bear the brunt of the second phase of the fighting, which is already suffering from lack of basic needs. He said that 27 out of 35 hospitals in Gaza have been destroyed due to which people are facing problems but due to the actions of Hamas, common people are also forced to suffer the consequences.

Brigadier Shri DS Tripathi (retired) said that since Hamas is a terrorist organization, it can never reform. He said that the way Palestinian gunmen opened fire at a bus stop in Jerusalem, killing three Israelis and wounding six others, has led to a resurgence of violence in the area. Israel’s internal security agency Shin Bet identified the two attackers as Murad Namr, 38, and his brother Ibrahim Namr, 30, of East Jerusalem, he said. The agency has said that both were members of Hamas and had previously been jailed for terrorist activities. The Israeli agency said Murad was jailed between 2010 and 2020 for plotting terrorist attacks under instructions from terrorist elements in the Gaza Strip, and Ibrahim was jailed in 2014 for undisclosed terrorist activity. . Video footage showed that both were armed with M-16 assault rifles and a handgun. Police searched the vehicle and found a large quantity of ammunition. Police are combing the area to avoid any additional attackers.

Brigadier Shri DS Tripathi (Retd) said that the attack took place soon after Israel and Hamas agreed to extend the ceasefire by the seventh day. He said an announcement from the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office said the War Cabinet had unanimously decided that a list of issues that had been agreed upon in the framework of the agreement would be submitted at 7 a.m. (Thursday, 30 November 2023), the fighting will resume immediately. The Israeli PMO said in its statement that in accordance with the terms of the framework, a list of women and children was handed over to Israel some time ago, so the pause will continue. The PMO said that after receiving the list of hostages to be released on November 30, the families have been informed.

Brigadier Shri DS Tripathi (Retd) said that India’s stance on the Israel-Hamas war is ‘constructive’ and stressed on a two-state solution. He described Hamas as a “terrorist group” and said Israel has the right to defend itself. He said that India is not neutral regarding Hamas’ attack on Israel and has strongly condemned this terrorist act. He said that Hamas is a terrorist group and has attacked democracy. We support Israel’s action against Hamas in this regard. But we do not support its actions against the Palestinian people, where two million people live. One has to differentiate between these two. He said that our stance on this has been constructive. We are against terrorism, because it has wreaked havoc in our country too–we suggest a ‘two-state’ solution to the problem, in which both Palestine and Israel should have the right to establish their own states.
