The crisis of Israeli refugees after the Al-Aqsa storm – the unseen dimensions of the war in Gaza – rahnam

According to the report of rahnam International News Agency, following the surprise attack of the Palestinian resistance forces on Israeli settlements on October 7th, 2023, and also following the beginning of limited clashes between Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Israel on October 8th, the Zionist regime was forced to be on the sidelines. To evacuate more than 105 neighborhoods and towns along its southern and northern borders and transfer their population of around 200,000 people to the more central areas of the occupied territories.

This aspect of the consequences of the recent war for Israelis, along with 1,500 dead, 6,000 wounded and at least 242 prisoners, has been less studied and analyzed by the world media. This is the first time that in the conflicts between Israel and Palestine, a large group of residents of the occupied territories also face the problem of homelessness and displacement.

The Emergency Management Department of the Ministry of War of Israel announced on October 22 that it had taken in about 120,000 displaced Israelis. This number has been removed from 53 neighborhoods and towns located around the Gaza Strip. Sderot town is one of the biggest towns in the southern border strip where 36 thousand Zionists live.

According to the Israeli authorities, these 120,000 people are divided into two main categories: people who have been completely evacuated from their homes and the second category of people who need accommodation in government residences.

On the other hand, more than 80,000 people from the towns and cities in the north of the occupied territories and the border with Lebanon have left their places of residence so far. At least 28 settlements in the northern strip of Israel have been evacuated. Kiryat Shemone is considered one of the most important northern towns and has a population of 23 thousand. As long as the war continues and the security risks are not resolved, the responsibility for the cost of living, food, and accommodation for these 200,000 people will be fully borne by the governing coalition of the occupied territories, which is another burden on Israel’s economy. In order to accommodate this number in Israeli hotels, there was a crisis and the work went into chaos. Because canceling the admission of people who booked hotel rooms took some time and caused them dissatisfaction.

Prolonging the war and increasing pressures

As the war became long and erosive, a group of Israeli refugees were settled in military bases and live under tents. In this regard, War Minister Yoav Gallant and Israeli War Cabinet Minister Benny Gantz announced the prolongation of the war and claimed that the Israeli refugees might even have to stay in this situation for a year and not return to their place of residence for a year. The most optimistic assessments show that these displaced people will not be able to return to their homes and residences at least until the end of January 2024.

It seems that if the war is prolonged, the level of dissatisfaction among these 200,000 people will increase, and this will turn into a new crisis for Israel. Economic analyzes indicate that economic pressures will cause the economy of the Zionist regime to shrink by at least 11 percent after the war. In this regard, it seems that the budget deficit of the Zionist regime will increase several times. Also, during this period, a lot of pressure was put on Betsalel Smutrich, the Minister of Finance, to allocate the budgets of various ministries and the budgets set for the cabinet member parties to the war.
