Israeli tanks reach central Rafah as strikes continue

Israeli forces have reportedly reached the centre of the southern Gaza city of Rafah and seized a strategically important hill overlooking the nearby border with Egypt.

Witnesses and local journalists said tanks were stationed at al-Awda roundabout, which is considered a key landmark.

They also said tanks were on Zoroub Hill, effectively giving Israel control of the Philadelphi Corridor – a narrow strip of land running along the border to the sea.

The Israeli military said its troops were continuing activities against “terror targets” in Rafah, three weeks after it launched the ground operation there.

Western areas of the city also came under intense bombardment overnight, residents said, despite international condemnation of an Israeli air strike and a resulting fire on Sunday that killed dozens of Palestinians at a tented camp for displaced people.

The Israeli military said it was investigating the possibility that the fire was caused by the explosion of weapons stored by Hamas in the vicinity.

It also denied reports from local health and emergency services officials on Tuesday afternoon that tank shells had hit another camp in al-Mawasi, on the coast west of Rafah, killing at least 21 people.

Reuters news agency cited local health officials as saying the blast occurred after Israeli tank shells hit a cluster of tents in al-Mawasi on Tuesday. An official in the Hamas-run civil defence force also told AFP there had been a deadly Israeli strike on tents.

Videos posted to social media and analysed by BBC Verify showed multiple people with serious injuries, some lying motionless on the ground, near tents and other temporary structures.

There was no clear sign of a blast zone or crater, making it impossible to ascertain the cause of the incident. The location – verified through reference to surrounding buildings – is between Rafah and al-Mawasi, and lies south of the IDF’s designated humanitarian zone.

The IDF said in a statement: “Contrary to the reports from the last few hours, the IDF did not strike in the humanitarian area in al-Mawasi.”

Israel has insisted that victory in its seven-month war with Hamas in Gaza is impossible without taking Rafah and rejected warnings that it could have catastrophic humanitarian consequences.

The UN says around a million people have now fled the fighting in Rafah, but several hundred thousand more could still be sheltering there.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) began what they called “targeted” ground operations against Hamas fighters and infrastructure in the east of Rafah on 6 May.

Since then, tanks and troops have gradually pushed into built-up eastern and central areas while also moving northwards along the 13km (8-mile) border with Egypt.

On Tuesday, they reportedly reached the city centre for the first time.

The al-Awda roundabout, which is only 800m (2,600 ft) from the border, is the location of major banks, government institutions, businesses, and shops.

One witness said they saw soldiers position themselves at the top of a building overlooking the roundabout and then begin to shoot at anyone who was moving.

Video posted online meanwhile showed tank track marks on a road about 3km west of al-Awda roundabout and 300m from the Indonesian field hospital, which was damaged overnight.

Earlier, residents told the BBC that tanks seized Zoroub Hill, about 2.5km north-west of al-Awda roundabout, after gun battles with Hamas-led fighters.

The hill is highest point along the Egyptian border and its seizure means the entire Gazan side of the border is now effectively under Israeli control.

Zoroub Hill also overlooks western Rafah, where residents said there had been the heaviest air and artillery strikes overnight since the start of the Israeli operation.

A local journalist said the bombardment forced hundreds of families to seek temporary shelter in the courtyard of a hospital, while ambulances struggled to reach casualties in the affected areas.

At dawn, thousands of people were seen heading north, crammed into cars and lorries and onto carts pulled by donkeys and horses.

“The explosions are rattling our tent, my children are frightened, and my sick father makes it impossible for us to escape the darkness,” resident Khaled Mahmoud told the BBC.

“We are supposed to be in a safe zone according to the Israeli army, yet we have not received evacuation orders like those in the eastern [Rafah] region,” he added. “We fear for our lives if no-one steps in to protect us.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) did not comment on the various reports but put out a statement saying that “overnight troops operated on the Philadelphi Corridor while conducting precise operational activity based on intelligence indicating the presence of terror targets in the area”.

“The activity is being conducted as efforts are continuing to be made in order to prevent harm to uninvolved civilians in the area,” it added.

“The troops are engaging with terrorists in close-quarters combat and locating terror tunnel shafts, weapons, and additional terrorist infrastructure in the area.”

The IDF has told civilians in eastern Rafah to evacuate for their own safety to an “expanded humanitarian area” stretching from al-Mawasi, a coastal area just north of Rafah, to the central town of Deir al-Balah.

Israel’s prime minister said the killing of civilians in an air strike and resulting fire in Rafah on Sunday was a “tragedy”

On Sunday night, at least 45 people – more than half of them children, women and the elderly – were killed when an Israeli air strike triggered a huge fire in a camp for displaced people near a UN logistics base in the Tal al-Sultan area, according to the Hamas-run health ministry.

Hundreds more were treated for severe burns, fractures and shrapnel wounds.

The IDF said it was targeting two senior Hamas officials in the attack, which happened hours after Hamas fighters in south-eastern Rafah launched rockets towards the Israeli city of Tel Aviv for the first time in months.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said a “tragic incident” had occurred “despite our immense efforts to avoid harming non-combatants” and promised a thorough investigation.

IDF chief spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said on Tuesday that the strike had targeted a structure used by the Hamas commanders which was away from any tents, using “two munitions with small warheads”.

“Following this strike, a large fire ignited for reasons that are still being investigated. Our munitions alone could not have ignited a fire of this size,” he said.

Rear Adm Hagari added that investigators were looking into the possibility that the fire was caused by the explosion of weapons or ammunition stored in a nearby structure, and played what he said was an intercepted telephone conversation between two Gazans suggesting that. The audio recording could not immediately be verified.

Sam Rose of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, Unrwa, told the BBC from western Rafah that the killing of so many civilians could not be dismissed as an accident.

“Gaza was already one of the most overcrowded places on the planet. It is absolutely impossible to prosecute a military campaign involving large-scale munitions, strikes from the sky, the sea, the tanks, without exacting large-scale civilian casualties,” he said.

“It seems like we are plumbing new depths of horror, bloodshed and brutality with every single day. And if this isn’t a wake-up call, then it’s hard to see what will be.”

Last week, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ordered Israel to “immediately halt its military offensive, and any other action in the Rafah Governorate, which may inflict on the Palestinian group in Gaza conditions of life that could bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part”.

Israel launched a military campaign in Gaza to destroy Hamas in response to the group’s cross-border attack on southern Israel on 7 October, during which about 1,200 people were killed and 252 others were taken hostage.

At least 36,090 people have been killed in Gaza since then, according to the Hamas-run health ministry.

Lok Sabha 2024: The influencers driving India’s big election

BBC InfluencersBBCInfluencers like Ranting Gola (left) and Sham Sharma are using their social media presence to promote political parties

Just weeks before the first ballot was cast in this year’s Indian election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was at an event in Delhi rubbing shoulders with people known by names like BeerBiceps and Curly Tales.

The event – an awards show, congratulating some of the country’s top social media stars on their work – was an acknowledgement of the power of the influencer which a few years ago may have seemed unimaginable.

And as politicians prepared to battle it out for India’s billion votes, these influencers were being lined up to play a crucial role in reaching the young, the disinterested and the disillusioned.

But even as some celebrate social media’s democratisation of the media – a place where any one can share their views freely – others paint a darker picture, one where threats are rife, and the truth can be set aside for the right pay cheque.

A decade ago, you would have struggled to find anyone calling themselves an “influencer”.

But now, says Vinay Deshpande, co-founder of Rajneethi, a political management consultant firm, “it’s become a profession”.

“I know teenagers who are doing this part-time to earn pocket money.”

Pocket money underplays the earning potential somewhat, however. At the lower end, people can charge around 2,000 rupees ($24; £19) a day, but top influencers can pull in about 500,000 rupees for a post – equivalent to the monthly salary of someone in top-level management.

The creator of the Ranting Gola channel revealed to the BBC that political parties and election management firms have offered as much as “100,000 to 500,000 rupees for a single campaign”.

It is no small amount – but then, it could turn the tide in a candidate’s favour.

Presentational grey line

Mr Deshpande says they have helped an opposition candidate win an assembly election by pushing out content through a curated list of local influencers with a small but active following.

“Social media content is powerful and can influence the way a person feels about an issue,” Mr Deshpande says. “It gives social currency to a belief or opinion – but this can lead to a lack of critical thinking about an issue,” he adds.

Preethi Aggarwal, 25, is one of those who turns to apps like Instagram, YouTube and Twitter to help her understand the news.

Like thousands of others, Ms Aggarwal follows a bunch of “political influencers”, or people who talk about politics on social media to “really understand what’s going on”.

“News can get boring and complicated sometimes. I think these people [influencers] make it fun and easier to understand,” she says, adding the context and their own perspective help her form her opinions.

But the problem is, whose perspective is she getting?

PMO India / YouTube InfluencersPMO India / YouTubePM Modi congratulated Ranveer Allahbadia (left, known as BeerBiceps) and other influencers at a recent event

YouTuber Samdish Bhatia reveals numerous politicians have reached out to him, especially in the months before this election, offering him millions of rupees to interview them.

“But they wanted me to share questions in advance or get the video approved before it’s published,” he says, adding that he declined the offers because he “likes to maintain editorial control”.

The particular trend for longer form, slightly chummy interviews – where politicians get to show off their human side – is particularly vulnerable to management, says Joyojeet Pal, an associate professor at the University of Michigan.

“Many of these interviews are carefully managed by politicians,” Mr Pal says.

But even if they aren’t, a gentler style of questioning can also blur the line between interview and promotion, says Mr Pal.

“If your questions aren’t holding power to account, then the interview just becomes a platform for easy publicity.”

But for Mr Pal, this is just one of the problems he sees with politics on social media.

In a recent research paper, he examined some of India’s top influencers and who they interviewed, finding BJP leaders were featured more often than opposition leaders.

His research also found an overall drop in the number of accounts posting content critical of the incumbent government in recent years, while the amount of pro-BJP content had increased.

“This hints at a growing hesitancy among people to be openly critical of the government whereas there seems to be more confidence in putting up polarising content or content that supports the government’s ideologies,” Mr Pal says.

“And this is dangerous for democracy,” he adds.

Getty Images InfluencersGetty ImagesEven in the most remote areas, Indians have access to a mobile phone and internet

Influencers supporting the opposition certainly suggested they were working in a hostile environment.

A number who post content that’s critical of the government declined to speak to the BBC for this piece citing fear of repercussions by the government. They also run their channels under pseudonyms to keep their identities secret.

The Ranting Gola told the BBC that she has often received comments that are abusive or threatening because of the videos she posts and that her Instagram account has been disabled numerous times, even though the platform hasn’t given her a clear reason for doing so.

She also only spoke to the BBC on the condition that her name not be revealed.

The BJP government has denied allegations that it has clamped down on dissent and free speech.

But even pro-BJP YouTuber Sham Sharma told the BBC that freedom of speech could be a problem in India:

0:52YouTuber Sham Sharma talks about the positives and perils of sharing his views online.

But even given these concerns, opposition parties are using the same influencer system to reach voters in what they say is a difficult environment.

“The mainstream media has been taken over by the BJP,” alleges Supriya Srinate, who heads social media for the Congress party.

“Our funds have been frozen; we have no money to advertise,” she adds, referring to action taken by India’s tax department weeks before the elections. Congress leaders have accused the government of political vendetta, but the government has denied the allegation and said that the federal department was doing its job independently.

Influencers, Ms Srinate argues, are a good way to reach voters as a result of these alleged hurdles, explaining the Congress has been working with “volunteers” who believe in the party’s ideology and want to share its work on social media.

Ankit Lal, former political advisor of the opposition Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), agrees that influencers have helped democratise the publicity landscape.

Akash Banerjee, a former journalist who runs the YouTube channel, The DeshBhakt, argues that influencers are also able to push boundaries more than the traditional media can.

He cites the video ‘Is India becoming a dictatorship?’ – made by popular content creator Dhruv Rathee, who is based in Germany – which takes on the government directly, and has been viewed about 24 million times on YouTube so far. The government hasn’t reacted to the video yet.

“After the video, the term ‘dictatorship’ has popped up more in conversations, and this is something that has never happened before,” Mr Banerjee says.

“Our job as influencers may not be to open the window and check if it’s really raining, but we owe it to the nation to take a look outside the window and let people know if dark clouds are approaching and that they can do something about it by voting.”


Bruises and broken ribs – Palestinian deaths in Israeli prisons

Supplied Abdulrahman MariAbdulrahman Mari died in an Israeli prison after 7 October

A few days after Hamas attacked Israel and war erupted in Gaza, Umm Mohamed in the occupied West Bank received a telephone call from her son in an Israeli prison.

“Pray for me mum,” Abdulrahman Mari said. “Things are getting harder here. They might not let me speak to you again”.

It would be the last time she heard his voice.

Conditions deteriorated for Palestinian prisoners in Israel after 7 October last year, when Hamas mounted its deadly assault on Israeli communities near the Gaza Strip, according to the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority’s (PA) Commission of Detainees Affairs.

Thirteen Palestinian prisoners have since died in Israeli prisons, “the majority of them as a result of beating or denial of medication”, the commission’s head, Qadoura Fares, told the BBC.

Abdulrahman was one of the first to die.

A carpenter in the village of Qarawat Bani Hassan, he had been on his way back home from work in Ramallah in February last year when he was arrested at a mobile checkpoint. He was taken into administrative detention – under which Israel can hold people indefinitely without charge – in Megiddo prison.

His brother Ibrahim said the charges against him were minor, such as taking part in protests and possessing a firearm, but said he was also accused of belonging to Hamas although there were no specific charges about any activities within the group.

Ibrahim is still trying to piece together how exactly his brother died. He has to rely on testimony from Abdulrahman’s former cellmates, as well as reports from court hearings.

One former cellmate, who spoke to the BBC on condition of anonymity, said: “After 7 October, it was total torture. They beat us for no reason, they searched us for no reason. Even if you look at someone the wrong way.”

He described having seen Abdulrahman heavily beaten in front of him and others.

“At 9am, they came into our cell, and began to beat us. One of the guards began to insult Abdulrahman’s parents, which he didn’t stand for, and he began to fight back.

“They beat him badly, and took him away to another cell upstairs for a week. During that time you could hear him crying out in pain.”

He said he had only found out about Abdulrahman’s death after he left prison a week later.

The Israeli prison service did not directly address the BBC’s questions about Abdulrahman’s death or those of the 12 other named Palestinians that the Commission of Detainees Affairs says have died, saying only: “We are not familiar with the claims described and as far as we know they are not true.”

Getty Images israeli vehicles in Balata in the west bankGetty ImagesIsrael has detained thousands of West Bank Palestinians since 7 October

Professor Danny Rosin, a doctor from the group Physicians for Human Rights, attended the examination of Abdulrahman Mari’s body. His remarks corroborate what Abdulrahman’s cellmate and brother told the BBC.

Prof Rosin’s report mentioned that bruises had been seen over Abdulrahman’s left chest, and that he had several broken ribs. External bruises were also seen on the back, buttocks, left arm and thigh, as well as the right side of the head and neck with no fractures underneath.

It also quoted an additional police report which had mentioned “forceful restraint” being used on Mr Mari six days before his death.

Professor Rosin said in the report that while no specific cause of death had been found, “one may assume that the violence he suffered manifested by the multiple bruises and multiple severe rib fractures contributed to his death”.

He also added that “irregular pulse” or a “heart attack” could result from these injuries without leaving any physical evidence.

Israel currently holds more than 9,300 security prisoners, the vast majority of whom are Palestinians according to the Israeli rights group HaMoked, including more than 3,600 people in administrative detention.

These figures do not include detainees from the Gaza Strip being held in separate facilities by the Israeli military.

Mr Qadoura says the change after 7 October “affected every aspect of the prisoners’ lives”, alleging that prisoners have been subjected to starvation and thirst and some of those with chronic illnesses were denied their medication. Beatings became more regular and more brutal.

“I met a detainee who’d lost 20kg in the last three months,” he said.

“It’s as if the war on Gaza was also a war on Palestinian prisoners. It was all a form of revenge.”

Yasser Hamdan and a pic of his son

Arafat Hamdan was dead within two days of his arrest

The BBC has previously heard from Palestinian prisoners who described being hit with sticks, having muzzled dogs set on them and having their clothes, food and blankets taken away in the weeks after 7 October.

The Israeli prison service has denied any mistreatment, saying that “all prisoners are held in accordance with the law while respecting their basic rights and under the supervision of a professional and skilled prison staff”.

It said prisons had gone into “emergency mode” after war broke out and it had been “decided to reduce the living conditions of the security prisoners”. Examples it gave included removing electrical equipment and cutting electricity to cells and reducing prisoners’ activities in the wings.

In the West Bank village of Beit Sira, Arafat Hamdan’s father showed where Israeli police officers had kicked the door of his family home and stormed in at 04:00 on 22 October looking for his son.

Police covered his son’s face with a thick black cloth and closed it around his neck with a rope. The mask smelled strongly, he said, and Arafat clearly had a hard time breathing with it on.

“I kept trying to comfort him.” Yasser Hamdan told the BBC. “It’s ok. They have nothing against you. They have nothing against us. I kept telling him that as they tied him up outside the house. Then they took him.”

Two days later a phone call came. Arafat had been found dead in his cell in Ofer prison in the West Bank.

Israeli authorities have not explained how he died. Arafat had Type 1 diabetes and would suffer from low blood sugar levels from time to time.

His father said one of the police officers arresting Arafat had told him to bring medicine with him, but it was unclear if he had been able to.

The BBC obtained a report by Dr Daniel Solomon, a surgeon who was present at the post mortem of Arafat Hamdan at the request of Physicians for Human Rights.

Dr Solomon said it had been carried out in Israel on 31 October but added that the condition of the body, due to prolonged refrigeration, had made it harder to determine the cause of death.

He also noted the absence of any records showing if Arafat’s diabetes medication had been administered and at what dosing.

The report also mentioned the need for other tests beyond the post mortem to determine the cause of death.

“Until now we don’t know how he died. Nothing is clear.” Yasser Hamdan said.

Umm Mohamed

Umm Mohammed said Abdulrahman had become a leader of his group of prisoners before his death

Neither Arafat’s nor Abdulrahman’s bodies have yet been returned. Their families want to arrange their own post mortems, hold funerals, and say a final goodbye.

“He was my flesh and blood. Then he was gone in a moment,” Yasser Hamdan said. Photos of his son were everywhere you looked in his apartment.

Umm Mohamed showed photos of Abdulrahman on her phone, pointing to one and saying: “Look at him. He was so cheerful.”

Over time he had become a leader in his group of prisoners, she said.

“He’d call me when he was making breakfast for them when they were all still asleep. He was always the most active. He would never sit still, that boy.”

She broke down. “Bring him back to me. I want to see him one last time. One last look.”


Tiba-Tiba Biden & Xi Jinping Saling Telepon, Ada Apa?

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Presiden Amerika Serikat (AS) Joe Biden dan Presiden China Xi Jinping mengadakan panggilan telepon selama dua jam, Selasa waktu setempat. Hal ini dilakukan untuk mengelola persaingan kedua negara yang sedang bergesekan terkait perdagangan.

Selama pembicaraan telepon dengan Xi, yang merupakan pertemuan telepon pertama sejak Juli 2022, Biden menyampaikan sejumlah kekhawatiran AS. Ini terungkap dari pembacaan pembicaraan telepon tersebut di Gedung Putih.

Secara khusus, Biden mengkonfrontasi Xi mengenai kebijakan perdagangan tidak adil dan praktik ekonomi non-pasar. Biden juga mengatakan bahwa ia akan terus mengambil “tindakan yang diperlukan” untuk memblokir akses China terhadap teknologi AS jika hal itu menimbulkan risiko keamanan nasional.

Diketahui Biden meluncurkan penyelidikan terhadap mobil pintar China, yang dipicu oleh kekhawatiran bahwa mobil pintar tersebut dapat merusak keamanan nasional AS. Paman Sam menghubungkannya ke infrastruktur Amerika dan mengambil data pengemudi.

Persaingan yang ketat memerlukan diplomasi yang intens untuk mengelola ketegangan, mengatasi kesalahan persepsi dan mencegah konflik yang tidak diinginkan,” kata seorang pejabat senior pemerintah melalui telepon dengan wartawan dikutip CNBC International, dikutip Rabu (3/4/2024).

“Panggilan ini adalah salah satu cara untuk melakukan itu,” tambahnya.

Pada panggilan telepon hari Selasa, Biden juga menyampaikan kekhawatirannya terhadap keamanan atas TikTok. Ia juga membahas usulan Kongres untuk memaksa ByteDance, induk aplikasi media sosial tersebut, untuk menjual aplikasi tersebut ke perusahaan AS.

“Dia (Biden) menjelaskan kepada Presiden Xi bahwa ini bukan tentang pelarangan aplikasi tersebut,” kata Juru Bicara Dewan Keamanan Nasional John Kirby.

“Sebaliknya ada kepentingan divestasi agar kepentingan keamanan nasional dan keamanan data rakyat Amerika bisa terlindungi,” ujarnya lagi.

Biden juga memperkuat prospek ancaman keamanan siber. Terutama menjelang pemilihan presiden AS pada bulan November.

“Kami sangat jelas menyatakan kekhawatiran kami bahwa negara mana pun akan ikut campur atau mempengaruhi pemilu kami,” ujar seorang pejabat senior pemerintah lainnya.

Pernyataan Xi Jinping

Di sisi lain, Xi mengatakan bahwa semakin banyak pembatasan perdagangan AS terhadap China dapat membawa dampak yang buruk bagi konsumen di kedua negara. Ia mengaku akan mengambil langkah untuk mengatasi hal ini.

“Kami tidak akan duduk diam dan menonton,” kata pernyataan resmi pemerintah China.

Selain perdagangan, Biden dan Xi Juga membahas ketegangan terkait Taiwan dan dukungan China terhadap Rusia dalam serangan ke Ukraina. Xi menekankan bahwa “masalah Taiwan adalah garis merah pertama yang tidak boleh dilanggar dalam hubungan AS-China”.

Terakhir kali Biden dan Xi bertemu langsung adalah pada bulan November, di sela-sela pertemuan puncak di Woodside, California. Di sana, para pemimpin sepakat untuk melanjutkan komunikasi militer-ke-militer antara AS dan China.

Terkait Yellen?

Sementara itu, panggilan ini terjadi sebelum kunjungan Menteri Keuangan AS Janet Yellen ke China untuk mengadakan pertemuan tatap muka dengan rekan-rekannya selama lima hari di Guangzhou dan Beijing. Menteri Luar Negeri Antony Blinken juga berencana mengunjungi Negeri Tirai Bambu akhir tahun ini.

“Hubungan ekonomi AS-China tidak diragukan lagi sekarang berada pada landasan yang lebih kuat dibandingkan dua tahun lalu,” kata seorang pejabat senior Departemen Keuangan pada hari Senin dalam panggilan pers untuk meninjau perjalanan Yellen.

“Kami tahu bahwa ada tantangan dan perbedaan pendapat yang besar dalam hubungan ini, dan hal tersebut tidak akan terselesaikan dalam semalam.”

Pekan lalu dalam pidatonya, Yellen memperingatkan mengenai surplus produksi produk-produk energi ramah lingkungan seperti panel surya, kendaraan listrik, dan baterai lithium-ion China. Ia menuding China menggunakan surplus ini untuk membanjiri pasar global dan menurunkan harga alat ramah lingkungan yang masih berkembang di negara-negara seperti AS.

Yellen mengatakan ini adalah salah satu masalah yang direncanakan untuk dikonfrontasi oleh rekan-rekannya di China. Kedutaan Besar China di Washington kemudian membantah adanya kelebihan produksi atau surplus.

Dalam beberapa minggu terakhir, Departemen Keuangan juga menyoroti kekhawatiran mengenai praktik keuangan Beijing, khususnya dugaan penggunaan investasi “tahap awal” di perusahaan-perusahaan sektor teknologi AS sebagai cara untuk mengakses data sensitif. Pertemuan seperti yang direncanakan Yellen adalah bagian dari upaya keseluruhan pemerintahan Biden untuk menstabilkan hubungan AS-China setelah terhentinya komunikasi selama bertahun-tahun.

Panasnya hubungan dagang tersebut dimulai dengan penerapan tarif pada era presiden Donald Trump yang hampir memicu perang dagang. Eskalasi kemudian berlanjut setelah Biden memberlakukan pembatasan perdagangan terhadap negara https://pembangkitkuku.com/tersebut.

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Anjloknya penjualan kendaraan bukan hanya terjadi pada kendaraan roda 4 mobil, namun juga kendaraan roda dua motor. Berdasarkan data Asosiasi Industri Sepeda Motor Indonesia, penjualan motor domestik pada Januari – Februari tahun ini mencapai 1.151.343 unit. Sedangkan tahun lalu mencapai 1.190.918 unit, ada penurunan sebesar 39.575 unit.

Pabrikan motor menilai penurunan penjualan sepeda motor secara nasional pada dua bulan awal ini karena beberapa factor, mulai dari kenaikan bahan pokok, kondisi cuaca dan sebagainya. Akibatnya daya beli dan kemampuan masyarakat ikut berpengaruh karena kegiatan ekonomi juga terdampak perubahan cuaca tersebut.

“Harga komoditi sebenarnya masih tinggi tetapi tidak naik, itu pengaruh juga. Jadi yang lebih banyak terpengaruh pulau Jawa sebenarnya, kenapa karena curah hujan tinggi jadi panen tertunda. Kemudian beberapa daerah ada yang terdampak bencana alam, ternyata itu berpengaruh buat kami,” Octavianus Dwi Putro, Marketing Director PT Astra Honda Motor (AHM), Jumat (29/03/2024).

Meski demikian, Ia yakin data penjualan bulan Maret bakal lebih baik dari bulan sebelumnya. Salah satu pendorongnya adalah momentum Lebaran dimana banyak masyarakat membutuhkan kendaraan untuk bermobilitas.

“Kemudian kalau dilihat, itu data AISI, ketika AISI itu kan distribusi, itu tidak turun-turun amat tetapi memang kita mau menyehatkan stok ada juga di situ, stok di market yang mau kita jaga tetapi cukup ketika menjelang lebaran ini. Maret ini rasanya baik kami atau yang lain distribusinya akan lumayan terutama menjelang lebaran,” sebut Octa.

Senada, Executive Vice President Director AHM Thomas Wijaya juga mengungkapkan sejumlah penyebab penjualan motor bisa turun, mulai dari kondisi alam hingga faktor pemilihan umum yang membuat masyarakat menunggu sambil melihat kondisi atau wait and see.

“Kondisi ini terjadi dipengaruhi banyak faktor. Situasi politik terkait dengan pemilu dan kondisi ekonomi di berbagai daerah karena cuaca dan bencana yang terjadi di awal tahun,” ujar Thomas.

Sebelumnya, Menteri Keuangan Sri Mulyani Indrawati menyoroti secara khusus tren penjualan mobil dan motor yang anjlok drastis pada akhir Februari 2024. Meskipun ia meyakini tingkat konsumsi masyarakat masih sangat baik.

Ia mengatakan, penjualan mobil telah terkontraksi delapan bulan berturut-turut hingga akhir Februari penjualannya minus 18,8% secara tahunan atau year on year. Sementara itu, penjualan sepeda motor telah terkontraksi selama enam bulan berturut-turut hingga ke level https://pembangkitkuku.com/minus 2,9%.
