Amid the developments on the front of the war between Israel and the terrorist group Hamas, which this Monday (9) entered its third day, many effects that the conflict could have on geopolitics —regional and global— and on the economy remain uncertain.
On the ground, Israel said it had completed the recapture of areas attacked by terrorists and continued bombings in the Gaza Strip, with ministers ordering the blockade of services in the region. Hamas has threatened to kill kidnapped civilians if Israel’s attacks continue. The death toll exceeds the 1,500 mark, 900 of which are Israelis.
In the diplomatic field, allies promised military aid to Tel Aviv, and the European Union said it will discuss the transfer of resources to Palestinian projects. Israeli President Isaac Herzog said attacks like those over the weekend had not been seen since the Holocaust and expressed gratitude for the support received.
One of the uncertainties about the conflict surrounds the future of the dialogues that Israel has established with Arab nations. Another involves how far the mobilization of allies can go — in the case of Hamas, the mobilization of Iran and Hizbullah —, especially taking into account the stage of the Ukrainian War. Finally, there are the impacts on the economy, which began with a rise in oil prices this Monday.
