Imminent War Outside the Temple Walls (Revelation 11:2)

hqdefaultIs another war in Gaza imminent?

Tell us what you think

Since the Great March of Return began earlier this year, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have protested along the fence with Israel, demanding their right to return to the land they were expelled from more than 70 years ago.

According to health officials in Gaza, more than 200 Palestinians have been killed and 18,000 wounded since these latest rallies began.

Recently, rockets were fired into Israel from Gaza and three Palestinian children were killed in an Israeli air raid. Is another full-scale Israeli attack on the strip inevitable?

Donald MacIntyre, former Jerusalem correspondent for The Independent and author of the book, Gaza: Preparing for Dawn, describes it as “a very fragile and dangerous situation”.

MacIntyre adds the most positive thing is that “neither Hamas nor Israel really wants a war right now, if it can be avoided.”

Najla Shawa is a Palestinian humanitarian aid worker based in Gaza.

When asked what priorities are for people in Gaza, Shawa says they fear continued denial of their rights.

“I think … what now people are really … fearing is another political solution that can completely ignore the rights, again, of the people, more than before, more than … previous peace agreements.”
