For the first time in its history, Israel records a record number of displaced people, reaching about half a million, according to statements by the Israeli army, a number that will exacerbate the problems and economic and moral burdens on the occupation government.
To avoid missile strikes from the Palestinian resistance in Gaza stripThe Israeli government resorted to evacuating thousands of Israelis from their homes, and covered the expenses of their accommodation during the period of their displacement, as it rented hotel rooms and guest houses for them, and also resorted to setting up tents to shelter them, in a scene that is no longer limited to Palestinians alone.
According to Israeli newspapers, the number of displaced people from the Gaza envelope settlements and from the border with Lebanon reached 120,000 displaced people, but the number rises to half a million displaced people, according to what the Israeli army previously announced, adding to the list a number of other cities from outside the Gaza envelope that were struck by resistance missiles.
Because these displaced people need many services, most notably housing, food, and treatment, the Prime Minister’s government finds Benjamin Netanyahu It faces new burdens added to the burdens of the worsening fiscal deficit.
The Israeli Hotel Association revealed that more than half of Israeli hotel rooms are now being used to accommodate families evacuated from settlements around the Gaza Strip. Of the 56,000 hotel rooms in Israel, 28,000 rooms have been allocated to evacuees.
According to a report broadcast by Al Jazeera, the Israeli government will bear these expenses, allocating about $50 per person per day to those who did not receive hotel rooms.
The occupation government proposed a project to establish a tent city in Eilat to accommodate more displaced people, a city that received 60,000 displaced Israelis, more than its population.
This government is subject to criticism regarding the size and mechanism of compensation for displaced Israelis, which many see as neither sufficient nor fair.
The repercussions of the Israeli displacement
As stated in the Al Jazeera report, there are other repercussions of the Israeli displacement, as the settlements around the Gaza Strip will be economically harmed by the loss of manpower, and it is an area that official statistics say provides 75% of the vegetables consumed in Israel, in addition to 20% of the fruits, and more than 6% of the milk. .
The Israeli exodus has many connotations in the Israeli imagination, as the images of people permanently leaving Israel deepen the scene and confirm that the process of “Al-Aqsa flood“As much as it broke the image of military deterrence, it also pushed many Israelis into a reverse migration, with them losing the dream of remaining in what they call the “Promised Land.”
