When Supporting Israel Is a Liability: Is Gaza Changing the West? Ladylove

by Ramzy Baroud 

Much has been written about the political earthquakes in Britain and France, the first resulting in the crushing defeat of the Conservative Party and the latter in the overpowering of the far right, by a largely leftist coalition.

The Yemeni Ansurullah Coalition on July 19 launched a successful drone strike on the centre of Tel Aviv, a city internationally recognised as the Israeli capital. The attack is one of the latest by Yemeni forces against Israeli targets since the outbreak of hostilities between Israel and Palestinian militia groups in the Gaza Strip in October 2023.

Eilat is situated on Israel’s southern coast on the Red Sea, linking the country to Asia and the Indian Ocean without the need to transit the Suez Canal, but its volumes had been in decline since a Q4 2022 spike saw the facility handle 124,000 tonnes, doubling its Q1 levels that year.

However, in a meeting with the Knesset’s Economic Affairs Committee on 7 July, CEO Gideon Golbert said there had been no activity at the port for eight months and no revenues coming in.

One person has been killed in a 'Houthi rebel' drone strike on Tel Aviv after the Israeli military detected the aerial weapon but didn't shoot it down 'due to human error'.  

Yemen's Houthi group claimed responsibility for the attack that caused an explosion at a building near the US embassy, which along with one dead, left at least a further 10 injured, according to reports.
