Israeli official speaks about a nuclear bomb – level 3

10-11-2023 07:00

Israeli Heritage Minister Amihai Eliyahu mentioned the possibility of using a nuclear bomb on Gaza during a radio interview.

However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu quickly distanced the government from this comment, stating it wasn’t based on reality and that Israel adheres to international law to avoid harming innocent people. Eliyahu later claimed his comment was metaphorical. Gaza has experienced intense bombardment recently, and the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have divided Gaza into two parts, with preparations to enter Gaza City. Hamas reports over 10,000 casualties in Gaza, and the humanitarian situation is deteriorating.

The Jordanian military air-dropped medical supplies into northern Gaza, coordinated with Israel, but calls for a humanitarian pause in hostilities from the US and others remain unanswered.

Difficult words: adhere (to stick to), metaphorical (symbolic), deteriorate (to become progressively worse).
