IDF chief: Israel ended Gaza fighting with a ‘clear advantage’ over Hamas

IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi says the recent fighting between the military and Gaza-ruling Hamas terror group ended decisively in Israel’s advantage.

“The balance of accomplishments ended in a clear advantage for the IDF and Hamas, which started a war as the alleged defender of Jerusalem, finished it as the destroyer of Gaza,” Kohavi says in a speech to graduates of the military’s war college.

He touts Israel’s “many achievements” in the campaign versus the “limited” military achievements of Hamas, most of which he says were psychological.”

He also says the IDF is drawing lessons from the fighting and “we are already preparing for the next campaign.”
