The number of victims is high, expected to increase before this battle stops. #Israel would want to improve its position be4 the cessation of hostilities' negotiation. The destruction is significant in #Gaza

HOWEVER, the strategic gain is much higher+

#Israel showed its vulnerable domestic front, its lack of unity, the control of extremists to many streets and the participation of the 1948 Arabs (the most important) in support of #Gaza.

Gaza took the lead and brought unity among the Palestinians. Gaza is defending #Jerusalem.
Because of this battle, Palestinians understand today that Resistance is the only way forward. This battle on #Gaza put the last nails in #Oslo and Camp David agreements.

This battle gave #Iran a solid position in the Middle East and confirmed it a regional power.

Divisive but necessary:
I grew up in a camp, full of factions, including those who belong to the Axis of resistance, Hamas, and Jihad.
The dynamics of these factions have been turned upside-down since the end of 2nd Intifada.
Those factions lost their role as liberatory movements. They simply turned into guns for rent in #Syria, #Libya, #Turkey, #Yemen, and anywhere where they can profit from.
I feel sad, angry, that Hamas is trying to kill one of the most beautiful peaceful movements that attracted the attention of the whole world, #Sheikh_Jarrah started humanizing our cause as Palestinians and refugees before Hamas militarized it.

To those arguing #Iran should be provided sanctions relief, keep in mind that money going into Iran is used by the regime to fund & arm terrorists.

The U.S. Navy recently seized a new shipment from Iran to the Houthi terrorists in #Yemen.

"An American defense official told The Associated Press that the Navy’s initial investigation found the vessel came from #Iran, again tying the Islamic Republic to arming the Houthis despite a United Nations arms embargo."

The two computer models which are known for their prowess in predicting cyclones continue to forecast cyclone formation in the Arabian Sea in coming days.

The question of whether these cyclones will form hangs over today's #MiddleEast and #HornOfAfrica rainfall forecasts.
This image shows the Arabian Sea area where the GFS and ECMWF models are both expecting cyclone formation within the next 10 days, at different times and in different places.
Here's the GFS 9th May model forecast for today showing formation starting on Friday and landfall five days later.

We have a shift to on-shore westerly wind in the Horn of Africa region today, which, I confess means little to me beyond being a new thing in the data. But it seems significant, as there is more water over the sea.

Today's rainfall/cyclone forecasts for the region follow.
Here's a view from this afternoon & the direction of travel is pretty stable. For me onshore winds bringing wet air towards mountains means lots more rain. If anyone is aware of the usual timing of this switch I would be interested.
Here are African 10-Day Accumulated rain forecasts. All of which now show the impact of the two Cyclones which are now in the forecast window.

The most important thing about these forecasts is to understand they are an early warning system about the possibility of a cyclone forming, not a forecast that one will do so.
