Defense Minister Yoav Gallant says the military is striking in areas of Gaza that it had not yet hit since the beginning of the war, and warns senior Hamas commanders in the southern part of the Strip.

“In the last two days, we are also operating in areas where we did not operate in the last month and this will increase. This action will reach every area that needs to be reached. We are going for the complete elimination of the Hamas organization,” Gallant says to reservists near the Gaza border.

“We have had very good achievements in the first month,” he says.

Gallant says the commanders of Hamas’s battalions in northern Gaza “already know very well what the IDF can do.”

“But the Hamas battalion commanders in Khan Younis and Rafah also understand very well what happened to the others,” he warns, as the IDF is expected to expand ground operations in southern Gaza.
