857. Gaza and Israel’s Operation Dawn – Gareth Browne reports from Ramallah

Tensions in Gaza are rising as another Islamic Jihad leader has been killed and with the death toll now over 30, there are fears that things are going to get worse. Joining me to discuss this is Ramallah based Journalist, Gareth Browne.
Gareth explains how this escalation started with the arrest of Islamic Jihad commander Bassam al-Saadi in Jenin, 5 days ago. He outlines the reasons why Hamas are currently not involved and the pressures internally to alleviate the suffering of Palestinian citizens. We also talk about the Israeli political campaign behind this and the imbalance of power between the 2 sides. Thanks to Gareth for fitting me in during such a busy time.
