The port in Gaza is Israeli-American plot to “force residents to leave the Gaza Strip” and “annex

Palestinian political commentator Kamal Zakarneh: “The naval passageway that the US has created in the Gaza Strip began to transfer a certain amount of aid, aid for the sake of appearances. I think this is a prelude for something much more dangerous than this so-called humanitarian aid. There is a joint Israeli-American policy of taking control, and their goal is to perpetuate the control over the Gaza Strip and the control over the lives of the Gaza Strip residents… and everything connected to the life necessities there, starting with closing the land passageways… and leaving the naval passageway as the only opening to the Gaza Strip. There is great concern that they will force the residents through economic, security, and social pressure to leave and empty the Gaza Strip of the residents, and annex it to the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel).”

Zakarneh said this during the 2023 Gaza war, during which Israel sent humanitarian aid to the residents of Gaza. Aid which was often confiscated by Hamas and never reached the civilians.

Hamas war on Israel October 2023 - Over 1,100 Israelis, including over 800 civilians, were murdered and over 5,000 wounded, in addition to approximately 251 who were abducted into the Gaza Strip (including 135 later released or liberated - 19 of them whose bodies were retrieved - and at least 41 who were killed and had their bodies held), in a Hamas terror war that began when approximately 3,000 Hamas terrorists and thousands of Gazan civilians broke through Israel's security fence at the Gaza Strip border and launched a surprise attack, taking control of several Israeli towns and attacking a music festival on the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, which fell on the Sabbath, Oct. 7, 2023. During the massacre the terrorists tortured, raped, shot, beheaded, and burned their victims alive, murdering entire families and leaving at least 21 children without parents. Hamas terrorists also fired at least 5,000 rockets at Israeli population centers. In response, Israel launched Operation Iron Swords to counter the Hamas terror threat. Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon joined Hamas' terror war starting from the following day, attacking Israel from the north. Occasional rocket launches and shootings continued from Lebanon throughout the war. A ceasefire and prisoner exchange deal began on Nov. 24, 2023, in which Israel agreed to release 150 terrorist prisoners, pause drone surveillance in the Gaza Strip, and allow movement between the northern and southern Gaza Strip, in return for 50 Israeli female and child hostages held by Hamas. The deal was subsequently extended with additional releases, until Hamas violated the agreement and resumed attacking on Dec. 1, 2023.
