Defense Minister Yoav Gallant says he is taking responsibility for Hamas’s onslaught on southern Israel on October 7.

“I am responsible for the defense establishment. I was responsible for it in the last two weeks, even in the difficult incidents, and I am responsible for bringing it to victory in the battle,” Gallant says to the press at a military assembly ground near the Gaza border.

“We will be precise and deadly and we will continue until we complete the mission,” Gallant says.
