“EThis must be the last war in Gaza. For the simple reason that there will be no more Hamas,” Gallant said, addressing Israeli soldiers at an Air Force base in Tel Aviv, according to a statement from his ministry.
“It will take a month, two months, three months and in the end there will be no more Hamas. Before Hamas finds our armor and our infantry, it will try the Air Force bombs. And in my opinion, you know how to do that lethal, precise and qualitative way, as they have proven so far”, he declared.
The Islamist group Hamas launched a surprise attack on southern Israel on October 7 with the launch of thousands of rockets and the incursion of armed militiamen, taking two hundred hostages.
In response, Israel declared war on Hamas, a movement that has controlled the Gaza Strip since 2007 and which is classified as terrorist by the European Union and the United States, bombing several of the group’s infrastructures in the Gaza Strip and imposing a total siege on the territory with cuts of supply of water, fuel and electricity.
The conflict has already caused thousands of deaths and injuries, among military personnel and civilians, in both territories.
