I have no doubt the "g" word is going to keep cropping up more and more over the ensuing days and weeks, when the reality of what is happening on the ground in Gaza is written about.

And in particular, what is about to happen in Rafah, after 100,000s of Gazans were forced there after the IDF operations in northern Gaza.

27,000+ dead, and amongst them, this sidenote.
Relatives have found the body of a six-year-old Palestinian girl who had begged Gaza rescuers to send help after being trapped by Israeli military fire, along with the bodies of five of her family members and two ambulance workers who had gone to save her.

The Palestine Red Crescent Society accused Israel of deliberately targeting the ambulance it sent to rescue Hind Rajab after she had spent hours on the phone to dispatchers begging for help with the sound of shooting echoing around.

"The occupation deliberately targeted the Red Crescent crew despite prior coordination to allow the ambulance to arrive at the site to rescue Hind," the Red Crescent said in a statement.

Plenty pictures of innocent Israeli children, slashed or stabbed or burned or blown to bits in Israel by the ever-peaceful Palestinians.

Next?

Since the brave Hamas fighters have steadily fled southwards under cover of the displaced Palestinian population, it was inevitable that they would end up being corralled in Rafah, along with the displaced Palestinian population.

Arguably, the IDF could have landed troops from the sea along the southern coast, north of the Egyptian border and ran a pincer movement on the congealed mass of humanity and terrorists. This conflagration would then have played out in the middle of the strip. However, that would have left the IDF's backs open to the Egyptians. You just don't do that.

When it comes to Hamas, there probably is an Arabic word for what we all recognize as modus operandi. Unfortunately, the likes of Al Jazeera just can't bring themselves to say it. The narrative is all "but Israel".
