Israel announced the resumption of hostilities until the complete destruction of Hamas
Chief of the General Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces, Herzi Halevi, said that the IDF will continue the military operation in the Gaza Strip after the current pause. According to him, the fighting will continue "with all determination."
The IDF also noted that Israeli troops will carry out tasks until the complete destruction of the Hamas terrorist organization. This was reported by The Times of Israel.
According to Halevi, after the current truce ends, the military will resolutely return to the fight against Hamas. He noted that the Israeli military is fighting a fierce battle, protecting lives and upholding the values of the IDF.
Mr. Halevi emphasized that at this stage it was possible to create conditions for the release of the first group of hostages - children and women.
"Once this work is completed, we will resolutely return to our operations to continue the release of hostages and the complete elimination of Hamas," the military commander said.
As a reminder, Israel commented on the temporary truce with the Hamas group in the Gaza Strip, where the Israeli army is conducting a ground operation. They said that the suspension of intense fighting would be short-lived.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, on November 23, Israel received a list of hostages to be released by Hamas terrorists in exchange for a truce. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu assured that the temporary ceasefire would not harm the Defense Forces and would even help achieve Israel's military goals.
