Gallant: 60% of Hamas terrorists killed or injured

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant tells the Knesset that 60 percent of Hamas terrorists have been killed after nine months of war in the Gaza Strip, adding that the military has eliminated at least most of 24 of the terror group’s battalions.

Gallant was responding to a question regarding why Israel supplies electricity to the Gaza Strip, from Religious Zionism MK Ohad Tal.

“We have returned half of the hostages and we are determined to return the rest. The security establishment is determined to achieve the goals of the war. In order for us to be able to do these things, it is appropriate that we preserve our support on the battlefield,” he says, alluding to the need to maintain international support during the war.
