Israeli Army Radio reported that the military's assessments indicated that the war would not be successful in completely eliminating the Islamic Resistance Movement's (Hamas) capabilities to fire rockets, especially short-range missiles, at Israel.
The aforementioned radio quoted military officials as saying that the depth of fighting and ground operations is contributing to reducing the capabilities of Hamas and other organizations, but not ending them completely.
Army officials are quoted as saying that the military's ability to hit long-range ballistic missiles is good, but it is difficult to zero out the firing of short-range missiles in “Gaza enclave” areas.
Two years later, residents of the “Gaza envelope” can still hear sirens, a senior official told Israeli military radio.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the move aims to return prisoners of war, end Hamas' continued rule in Gaza since June 2007, and eliminate the movement's military capabilities, confirming that it has been resisting decades of occupation of Palestine.
Since last October 7, the Israeli army has been waging a devastating war on Gaza, with 21,672 martyrs as of Saturday, most of them women and children, and the number of wounded reaching 56,165. The Gaza Strip and the occupying army have carried out 14 massacres in the last 24 hours.
In response to daily Israeli attacks against the Palestinian people and their sanctuaries, particularly the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Hamas launched the Al-Aqsa Flood Attack against military bases and settlements near Gaza.
In the attack, Hamas killed about 1,200 Israelis and captured about 240, exchanging about 110 of them with Israel, keeping more than 7,800 Palestinians in its prisons, during a week-long standoff with Qatar-Egypt until the beginning of this December. – American Mediation.
