Defense Minister Yoav Gallant says Israel’s upcoming ground offensive in the Gaza Strip may last three months, but it will be the very last one if Israel succeeds in eliminating the Hamas terror group.
“This needs to be the last [ground] maneuver in Gaza, for the simple reason that after it there will be no Hamas. It will take a month, two months, three, but in the end, there will be no Hamas,” Gallant says at the Israeli Air Force’s command center in Tel Aviv.
“Before the enemy meets the armored and infantry forces, it will meet the bombs of the Air Force,” he continues.
“I am under the impression that you know how to do it in a lethal, precise, and very high-quality way, as it has been proven until now,” Gallant adds to the IAF officials.
