What does the bold part mean in this sentence?
Palestinians said the pullback should be carried out unconditionally, and the U.S. kept up its pressure to end the operation, which is Israel's most intensive in 13 months of fighting.
Thanks a lot
Thanks a lot first.
Does the "operation" mean "pullback"?
What is the correlation between the first sentence, namely "Palestinians said the pullback should be carried out unconditionally" with "which is Israel's most intensive in 13 months of fighting"?
I am a bit confused, can you explain a bit to me?
Please help me to explain the sentence a bit.
The preceding two or three sentences would help.
On the information given, it seems that Israeli troops are engaged in some form of military operation (the biggest/most violent that they have undertaken during this 13-month long war) which involves an incursion into Palestinian territory. There has been some discussion about an Iraeli withdrawal, but the Israelis have indicated that they will withdraw only if certain conditions are met. The Palestinians have said that the Israelis should simply withdraw; they (the Palestinians) are not prepared to meet any conditions.
Thanks a lot, five. But where is the U.S.? How to understand its part in the sentence?
