The representative of Yankee-Imperialism, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is holding several meetings with the leaders of the Middle East to “keep Gaza War from spreading.” Among the countries with which he has gathered, there is Arab Emirates, Qatar, Jordan and Turkey. The latter desperately attempts to act a “pro-Palestinian” due to the high support of the Turkish people to the Palestinian people, but the reality is very different. The Turkish democratic newspaper Yeni Demokrasi exposed that Turkey, even having “condemned” the state of Israel, has not ceased its commercial relationship with it, constantly burdens ships through private and public companies, including companies belonging to public office, to continue trade. But they not only continue as before – Israel’s exports to Turkey in the month of December compared to the previous month saw an increase of 30.4 percent to 393,3 million dollars.

Today the sirens in northern Israel have sounded again after a new “large -scale” drone attack by Hezbollah. A rocket is said to have hit the city of Metula. Yesterday, January 6, another similar attack was reported with more than 40 rockets launched as an “initial response” to the murder of Al-Arouri. His murder caused many social protests in oincreasether countries, such as Jordan or Morocco.

Yesterday, January 6th, the IDF spokesman reported that they had “dismantled Hamas operations in northern Gaza” and a lower activity in northern Gaza to focus on the center and south. Today attacks against the northern part of the country have been reported again, which have left 70 dead in a residential area. The IDF spokesman says that sporadic attacks will continue to northern Gaza. Various sources report that 4% of the population of Gaza, about 90,000 people, have been killed, wounded or are missing. The death-toll already add up to 22,835, of which 9,600 are children, which represents 42% of the total.

According to sources, there is an “unprecedented” increase in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank since October 7th. A record has also been informed in Israelis attacks to Palestinians from illegal settlements.

The mobilizations of support for the struggle of the Palestinian people have continued throughout the world and denouncing the genocide committed by the state of Israel and Yankee imperialism:
