Biden Admin Asks IDF to Use ‘Smaller Bombs’ Against Hamas

via Hindustan Times

The conflict between Israel and Hamas has escalated, with the Biden administration urging Israel to use smaller bombs to minimize civilian casualties.

The conflict began on October 7, resulting in numerous civilian casualties. Secretary of State Antony Blinken urged Israel to take measures to reduce civilian deaths, but Israel rejected the idea.

The Biden administration’s approach was criticized on social media, and there are concerns about growing global instability due to the conflict. (Trending: US Troops Deliver Devastating Blow to Biden)

“U.S. officials said they have privately outlined several steps to Israel to reduce civilian casualties in its military campaign in the Gaza Strip, including using smaller bombs, when going after Hamas leaders and infrastructure,” reported the New York Times.

“American military officials say that the smaller bombs are much better suited to the dense urban environments of Gaza,” continued the report.

“But Israel has over the years built up stocks of larger bombs, intended mostly to target hardened Hezbollah military positions in Lebanon,” added the author.

Antony Blinken reportedly echoed this claim to reporters.

“U.S. officials told the Israelis that they could reduce civilian casualties if they improved how they targeted Hamas leaders, gathered more intelligence on Hamas command and control networks before launching strikes, used smaller bombs to collapse the tunnel network and employed their ground forces to separate civilian population centers from where the militants are concentrated,” wrote the NYT.

They also reported that Netanyahu rejected a plan by Antony Blinken that included “a series of pauses in the fighting to facilitate the flow of humanitarian aid into Gaza and the exit of foreign nationals from the enclave.”
