For months, Tsav 9 activists have organized to block convoys, harass aid workers and damage aid trucks as well as goods meant to alleviate pervasive hunger and suffering in Gaza. The group’s name means Order 9 in Hebrew, a reference to the military’s order calling up reservists.

The announcement by the State Department of the financial restrictions on Tsav 9 cites a May 13 incident in which activists looted and then set fire to two trucks in the West Bank carrying aid bound for Gaza.

    He really just sanctioned a fucking Facebook group?

    And expects us to clap for him?

    He needs to sanction Israel if he wants to do anything. This is going to matter as much as when he sanctioned a handful of “settlers”.

    It’s good optics, which is better than nothing, but it doesn’t actually accomplish anything.

    Not funding the fucking genocide and not spending 300 million on a bullshit pier instead of aid would go a lot further.

      The last time they sanctioned Israelis it was like 4 individuals and they walked it back almost immediately. This shit only exists for the headline and will disappear until some reply guy throws it in a giant list of Biden’s “accomplishments” that they will post whenever someone suggests Biden isn’t doing shit to help Gaza.

      The previous one lasted a week and a half so maybe he’s going for a new sub 7 day record
