US approves Rafah op. in exchange for no Israeli counterstrikes on Iran - report

The US has approved a potential Israeli Rafah operation in exchange for the Jewish state not conducting counterstrikes on Iran, according to a Thursday report from the Qatari newspaper The New Arab.

A senior official told The New Arab that "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu managed to obtain American approval for a military operation in Rafah, in exchange for [Israel] refraining from carrying out a wide military operation against Iran in response to its recent attack."

He claimed that "discourse of an Israeli response to Iran contradicts  the desires of the American administration, and is not realistic, given the Israeli claims that the United States played the major role in repelling the Iranian attack and preventing its success."


  1. An amazing chess game, isn't it?
    Here's the setup - Israel needs to attack Rafah, America is desperate to prevent Israel from winning the war
    Move - Israel strikes Iranian general in Syria
    Countermove - Iran plans revenge but America wants to be friends with Iran and can't allow a successful attack so they negotiate and arrange an unsuccessful one that allows Iran to crow about how great it is while leaving Israel unharmed.
    Move - Israel insists it has a right to strike back at Iran because, well, 300 missles. American again doesn't want Iran harmed.
    Countermove - Okay Israel, you can attack Rafah as long as you don't attack Iran.

    1. Wow!
      So Biden is really a Martian! And Bibi is really Smoky the Bear!
