go to the gaza strip lol, go to the west bank, its literally a warzone. demolished buildings, etc. the ruling party in palestine is affiliated with hamas, who fire rockets at israel, and israel shoots back. israel occupies the gaza strip, which is an act of war. it is war in all but name. israels stance is that palestine does not exist, therefore they cant declare war on it.
if it wasnt a war, why would they constantly be negotiating ceasefires?
