“There is a total mess”, retired general on Israeli military operations in Gaza

Retired Israeli Major General, Itzhak Brik, exposed the Israeli army’s chaotic condition in Gaza.

“There is a total mess. Equipment, logistics, food, and everything that is needed to move forward does not work,” Brik told Hebrew-daily Maariv.

Despite strict restrictions imposed by the government on the Israeli media to hide the reality, once in a while, new revelations come out of the battlefield.

Analysing the available information, Itzhak Brik says the present situation does not look good.

Brik is an important military analyst in Israel, and has served various military roles in the past.

He is currently working as a visiting fellow at the International Institute for Counter-terrorism at Israel’s Reichman University, in Herzliya.

“There is no one to repair tanks immediately. Dozens of tanks are stuck until they are dragged out. The media, of course, does not talk about it but these things do not work,” he added.

The retired general alleged that the prime minister Netanyahu’s team “did not want to hear the truth” and they distanced themselves from him when he tried to communicate.

“I told him that the army was not ready to go to war immediately because there are soldiers who haven’t trained for five years, and there is a shortage of equipment,” Brik said about Netanyahu, as quoted by Maariv.

Military analysts conclude that Israel’s land invasion of Gaza has miserably failed since beginning and it was due to the fear that the Palestinian Resistance was well prepared for that scenario.

According to Al-Qassam Brigades spokesperson, Abu Obeida, Hamas’ military wing alone has destroyed over 1100 Israeli military vehicles.

Most of the destroyed equipment, nearly 1000, are Merkava tanks.

In addition, Al-Quds Brigades and other Resistance groups have also destroyed a large number of Israel’s military vehicles and equipment, killing and wounding thousands of soldiers.

It is said that Israel’s military crisis in Gaza is getting worse.

An immediate withdrawal would be considered a pathetic defeat by the public, hence, they are prolonging the genocidal war facing even greater military losses.

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 29,606 Palestinians have been killed, and 69,737 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7.
