time is up which is soon enough and in the background we still see some talks being held mostly led by the egyptians interestingly enough the qataris we used to be very active with mediating when it comes to hamas this time i'm not so involved and soon we'll also see into the longer this operation goes we will have to see harsh response has coming from the arab states which israel has just recently can develop with like morocco like you know like the emirates and so on this puts them in a very uncomfortable position israel is aware of it and she did it they don't want to do that in israel so they're trying to see it's tiptoeing how far can we go still but it's not going to last much longer they know that as well. as we just saw in that report we mentioned earlier of course yesterday we saw the bombing of that building with a housing a page and on the 0 journalists among also civilians. it's drawing a lot of condemnation internationally and within israel as well what do you think was the strategy there why would israel do something like that well they claim
8:06 am
there's hamas intelligence there and accurate or not correct or not they don't really mind in part of israel's strategy in gaza what we've seen in the last day is no mass destruction of civil quarters and civil houses residential areas they hope that that pressure on the civil you know on the civilians in gaza will help rattle hamas shaken it up and put pressure on hamas this is what they're this is part of their strategy in this time they've been they've been at it right from the start usually it's a measure that they saved to the end and so for them i think it was also a mis calculus when it comes to international pressure we were just mentioning because targeting the press and that's that's doesn't you know that doesn't go well so easily and they might be paying heavy price on that in the front of of how that it's in the world it's mounting more pressure on israel actually back firing at them but the strategy of the scene all along is gaza is use civilians as
