The Israel Defense Forces will resume fighting in Gaza after the four-day ceasefire that began Friday, war cabinet minister Benny Gantz tells a crowd of hundreds attending a solidarity rally in Tel Aviv with the families of the Israeli hostages in Gaza.

“I want to assure the families of all the hostages: We will not stop, we will resume the efforts and the military action in Gaza to retrieve the hostages and restore deterrence,” Gantz, an opposition politician who joined the government following the outbreak of war with Hamas on October 7, tells hundreds of listeners in front of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

Gantz’s visit to Hostage Square comes as Hamas releases the first 13 Israeli hostages along with 12 Thai nationals.
