Defense Minister Yoav Gallant told US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin yesterday evening that Israel is committed to continuing the war against Hamas in Gaza until its goals of eliminating the terror group and rescuing the hostages are met, Gallant’s office says in a statement.

Gallant briefed his US counterpart on operational developments in the war, including achievements in the ongoing military efforts to dismantle terror infrastructure and eliminate Hamas terrorists across the strip, his office says.

The two also discussed the need to minimize civilian casualties in the Gaza Strip while also fighting Hamas terrorists embedded within the civilian population, it adds.
