Defense Minister Yoav Gallant says the hostage rescue operation in southern Gaza’s Rafah overnight is a “turning point in the campaign” against the Hamas terror group and that “there will be more operations.”
“Hamas is vulnerable, Hamas is penetrable, and it is possible to go anywhere and do anything,” Gallant says to troops of police’s elite Yamam unit, who carried out the rescue of Fernando Simon Marman and Norberto Louis Har.
“We [still] have hostages and we need to reach them. Most of them we will not bring this way, [but rather] I hope, through processes of agreement. But how many more times will [a rescue operation] be required, and under what circumstances — who knows?” he adds.
