Defense Minister Yoav Gallant says the war Israel is fighting against the Hamas terror group is “a war for our future.”

“Exacting a heavy price from the enemy is a necessary condition for our existence in the region,” adds Gallant in remarks provided by his office.

Gallant makes the comments during a visit to the Israeli Air Force’s underground command center at the IDF headquarters in Tel Aviv.

Gallant’s office says the defense minister has instructed the military to “significantly increase the intensity of attacks in the Gaza Strip” and “eliminate all of the Hamas targets.”
