The international press continues to shed light on the developments of the Israeli war in the Gaza Strip, and its repercussions on the region, especially the successive developments on the Yemeni and Lebanese fronts.

In this context, writer David Horowitz said in his article in the Times of Israel that the Israeli army’s war against the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) has lost momentum, and the disaster is at risk of getting worse due to the lack of political responsibility within Israel in supervising the fighting.

He added, "What Israel needs is a clear political direction, because the challenge is escalating due to the continuing contradiction within the ranks of the political leadership after more than 100 days of war."

In turn, writer Gideon Levy in the Hebrew newspaper "Haaretz" saw that the Israeli escalation in the West Bank would lead to the outbreak of a third intifada, explaining that the Israeli army changed its behavior in the occupied territories in a dangerous way due to the behavior of the extremist Israeli government, "It wants the Gaza model in the West Bank."

As for the American newspaper, The Wall Street Journal, it indicated that achieving the American vision for the Middle East after the war on Gaza requires reaching a consensus on who will be responsible for securing and rebuilding the Strip.

The newspaper drew attention to the fact that this vision still collides with a harsh reality in a region mired in conflict, especially in light of the continued exchange of attacks between the United States and Houthi forces in the Red Sea, which threatens the outbreak of a broader conflict.

Red Sea developments

For its part, the American magazine "National Interest" published an article written by James Robbins, in which he said that "deterring the Houthis will not be easy, and the possibility of escalation remains great, whether Western leaders want it or not."

The writer calls on Western leaders to threaten the Houthis with more forceful retaliatory measures if they continue targeting ships, noting that Western powers are trying to manage the conflict and use the minimum necessary force with the Houthis to achieve limited military goals.

The American magazine "Newsweek" also quoted American officials as saying that they believe that classifying the Houthis as a terrorist organization will intensify pressure on them to change their behavior and move away from Iran.

While a senior Houthi official told the magazine that US President Joe Biden's decision to once again classify the group as a terrorist organization will have no impact on its ongoing attacks in the Red Sea.

Lebanon Front

Regarding the Lebanese front, the British newspaper “Financial Times” said that Washington is intensifying its efforts to reach a diplomatic solution between Israel and Lebanese Hezbollah, noting that under pressure from America, the Israeli government gave the opportunity to diplomacy, but did not rule out the use of force.

The newspaper adds that the United States has secretly raised the possibility of providing an economic aid package to Lebanon, and any agreement will include more Western support for the Lebanese army.
