Brig. Gen. Itzik Cohen, the commander of the IDF’s 162nd Division, says IDF forces are currently located deep in Gaza, “at the gates of Gaza City.”

Cohen, speaking to reporters near the Strip, says that “Hamas chose this war, we did not choose this war.”

He says that five days ago, his division “received an important task, to go and decisively finish Hamas.”

Cohen says that over the past five days, “we have destroyed much of Hamas’s abilities, attacked its strategic facilities, all of its array of explosives, its underground tunnels and other facilities we completely destroyed.”

He says that this is a “long task,” and that this is “a war for the existence of the State of Israel — and we will win.”
