Resumed Carnage in Gaza Raises Danger of Spread of War Throughout the Region

One of the policy intentions of Netanyahu’s puppet-masters in London and Washington is to use the resumed Israeli carnage in Gaza and other provocations in the region to try to push Iran, Hezbollah and others over the edge into direct involvement in region-wide war in Southwest Asia.

In that regard, it is noteworthy that “Israeli forces and Hezbollah militants exchanged heavy fire across the Israel-Lebanon border throughout Saturday,” Reuters reported Dec. 2. Although only one casualty was reported on Dec. 2, a Hezbollah fighter, a day earlier three people in south Lebanon were killed by Israeli shelling. Hezbollah said two of the dead were its fighters.

More dangerous still is the report, confirmed by the Pentagon today, that two commercial ships and apparently a U.S. Navy vessel came under attack in the Red Sea. “We’re aware of reports regarding attacks on the USS Carney and commercial vessels in the Red Sea and will provide information as it becomes available,” the Pentagon told The Associated Press. The Carney is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer. It remained unclear what damage, if any, the vessels sustained in the attacks.
