Defense Minister Yoav Gallant says he sees “signs that indicate [Hamas] is beginning to break in Gaza.”

His remarks are made during Hanukkah candle lighting with troops of the Border Defense Corps’ Caracal Battalion — a mixed-gender light infantry unit — and Armored Corps on the Gaza Border.

“It is impossible to ignore the strong, prominent, and successful female presence [in the war]. Women have not really fought in the IDF since 1948, this is the first time this has happened, after 75 years, in massive fighting,” he says to the troops. “The results are very impressive.”

“I see the signs that indicate [Hamas] is beginning to break in Gaza. You all play a key role in this matter,” he adds.
