    Matthew Hollingworth “What we still see today is obviously just a level of destruction and dispossession that is far greater than I've probably ever seen anywhere else in the world in any other war. There's so much more to do. Every child I've met today in Gaza said the same thing. They are dreaming of eating vegetables, they're dreaming of eating meat. It's barely a life.” 4 hours ago

“What we still see today is obviously just a level of destruction and dispossession that is far greater than I've probably ever seen anywhere else in the world in any other war. There's so much more to do. Every child I've met today in Gaza said the same thing. They are dreaming of eating vegetables, they're dreaming of eating meat. It's barely a life.”

“We've seen massive displacement over the last weeks and months, and we know that combination and the heat can cause a rise in diseases. We have water contamination because of hot water, and we will have much more food spoilage because of the high temperature. We will get insect mosquitoes and flies, dehydration, heat stroke.”

“There is no real conflict between the state of Israel and Lebanon. The conflict is all around the core issue of Israel and Palestine. This is why international attention needs to be focused on finding the diplomatic, political end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and, first and foremost, the war in Gaza. The escalating fighting and bold rhetoric between Israel and Hezbollah is cause for concern. It's a very dangerous picture right now with both sides being quite bold in their remarks. A great deal of ignorance here of each side threatening to hit the other going way beyond what they've done in the past eight and a half months. It's extraordinarily dangerous for the people of Israel and the people of Lebanon if this war escalates anymore.”

“Right now, it seems that for the first time after many years, there is an ongoing escalation between the government headed by Netanyahu and his entourage of reporters, analysts who are actually on his - unofficially - on his team, that are smearing the chief of staff. It's a kind of apocalyptic scenario that the army spokesman - who is reporting to the chief of staff - is just undermining Netanyahu's doctrine, which is: We do have to put an end to the Hamas government once and for all in Gaza. What Hagari is saying is challenging Netanyahu and saying, actually … you are hallucinating.”

“The UN commission of inquiry's report documenting alleged war crimes in Gaza is strong, compelling and very much expected. The report is unlikely to have an immediate effect on the conduct of Israel, which has so far been unphased by such reports, but could be used as evidence in future legal proceedings and give pause to Israel's donor countries. We have seen a shift in policies in Western capitals. This will be further evidence as to the intent and conduct of Israeli authorities. It will have to - and should - cause all capitals to consider the extent to which support is provided to Israel in the ongoing conflict.”

“The situation in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, is dramatically deteriorating. 528 Palestinians, 133 of them children, were killed by Israeli military forces or settlers from the start of the current war on Gaza in October to June 15, in many cases raising serious concerns of unlawful killings.”

“He [Blinken] said the two proposals are virtually the same. But I will name you two important differences: One is that the Hamas proposal calls for the end of Israel's siege; the proposal outlined by the US does not. What's the point of this war or the past 20 years of four wars against Gaza if we're going to go back to square one where Israel imposes a siege on Gaza? So the Hamas proposal suggested ending the Israeli siege on Gaza. This new proposal does not. Two, there's the key difference between a permanent and temporary ceasefire. This proposal speaks of a temporary ceasefire. Hamas presented a permanent ceasefire. The difference lies in phase two, which says that Israel will withdraw from the Gaza Strip upon the agreement of the parties - which means Israel will have to agree. And there's every proof and demonstration that Israel does not want to end the war, and it keeps saying that this resolution will allow it to achieve its war objectives.”

“The bombardment continues intensely and it is very hard for the emergency responders to reach the killed and injured Palestinians. They are telling us that there are still people on the roads and under the rubble that they could not reach.”

“Scores of civilians and many children were killed today in the Israeli operation and they may not be mentioned or will be a footnote in today's news at best. As you smile seeing a father finally embracing his daughter in Tel Aviv, shed a tear for the father having to bury his daughter in Gaza. There is a way for Palestinian and Israeli families to be reunited in life not in death. That is the success we should all be striving for. After eight months of massacres, Israel will use today's images to try and justify the killing of 36,000 Palestinians and the destruction of the lives of 2.3 million Palestinians. Don't let it.”

“There is something to critics who have called the US a bit apocryphal in the way they're supporting Ukraine but also continuing unfettered support to Israel when there are real questions about the [Israeli army's] conduct in Gaza. There's a lot of soul-searching going on within the Biden administration. That's going to be another important factor come November - Biden's Gaza policy and what happens next with this attempt to bring a ceasefire to Gaza and figure out a post-conflict scenario.”

“The problem at the hospital [Al-Aqsa Hospital] here is represented by something above emergency. There are exhausted medical staff inside the hospital - for the past eight months, non-stop work, as well as the huge influx of injuries coming to the hospital. We have two other factors, important factors that are affecting the work of the hospital. One of which is the lack of fuel to keep it sustainable. The hospital is resorting to its solar panel systems on the rooftop, but this is not sufficient enough to run the operating rooms, to run the ICU or incubators for babies. It's only sufficient to keep on the lighting. The other important factor that is crippling the hospital's ability to intervene properly is the acute shortage of medical supplies. We're talking about almost a month now of no medical supplies.”

“As Israeli military strikes continued last night in the Middle Area, Al-Aqsa hospital is barely coping with the influx of patients and dead people. It's a scene of devastation. This hospital is a sinking ship. The scene inside the emergency room of Al-Aqsa hospital is even worse than yesterday. They had no chance to re-organise after yesterday's mass influx of casualties, and now they have been struck with another. And yet, the medical staff is saying 'we are not giving up on our patients', and I can definitely see that. I am just not sure for how long it will be sustainable.”

“The first thing I want to say is of course we are against terrorism in all its manifestations, against attacks against civilians - at any place and in any country. But what is happening now in Gaza in response to the well-known terrorist act in Israel does not really look like a war, it is some kind of total destruction of the civilian population. We believe this is a result of US policy. They monopolized the peace process. They pushed aside all previously established mechanisms for collective efforts to solve this extremely difficult problem.”

“It is wrong to see this proposal as more than a stopgap. Most important, this plan doesn't answer the fundamental question of who rules Gaza after the conflict. This is a cease-fire plan, not a day-after plan.”

“Children in Gaza are forced to deal with the horrific reality of loss, of trauma, of total destruction. The whole story is even darker than what we see. [The trauma] runs deeper as they grow up. Before October 7, some 5,000 children in Gaza needed some kind of mental health support. Today, all children in Gaza need mental health support and in many cases, specialised support as the war has had a profound impact on their psychological wellness. The services on the ground are almost non-existent. The only psychiatric hospital in Gaza has been out of service early on in this escalation and that means the basic needs of mental health can't be met. As long as children continue to witness and experience the war it's really hard to deal with the trauma. The first of the eight principles of trauma is to remove the person from the environment of the trauma. That's impossible in Gaza; there's no place that feels safe.”

“While we conduct our important military actions, the defence establishment is simultaneously assessing a governing alternative to Hamas. We will isolate areas (in Gaza), remove Hamas operatives from these areas and introduce forces that will enable an alternative government to form - an alternative that threatens Hamas. We will not accept the rule of Hamas in Gaza at any stage in any process aimed at ending the war.”

“Israel's conditions for ending the war have not changed: The destruction of Hamas military and governing capabilities, the freeing of all hostages and ensuring that Gaza no longer poses a threat to Israel.”

“I know there are those in Israel who will not agree with this plan. And will call for the war to continue indefinitely. Some are even in the government coalition. They've made it clear. They want to occupy Gaza. They want to keep fighting for years and hostages are not a priority for them. Well, I've urged leadership in Israel to stand behind this deal, despite whatever pressure comes. As someone who's had a lifelong commitment to Israel, as the only American president who has ever gone to Israel at a time of war, as someone who just sent the U.S. forces to directly defend Israel when it was attacked by Iran, I ask you to take a step back, think what will happen if this moment is lost. We can't lose this moment.”

“There is no doubt that the war on Gaza will diminish Biden's re-election chances. The signs are clear. The writing is on the wall. And should Biden decide to continue this lockstep support for Israel for another seven months, it's not only going to kill tens of thousands more Palestinians, but it's also going to lose him the election.”

“An Israeli offensive in Gaza that stretches beyond the US election on November 5 could mean Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu outlasts Biden. I would love to say that scenario is unrealistic, but I can't. That scenario is real. And it could happen on November 5.”
