Gallant says Israel has killed or wounded half of Hamas operatives in Gaza

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant tells IDF reservists that at least half of Hamas operatives in Gaza have been killed or wounded.

  • “We’re in a long war, but at the end we will break Hamas,” Gallant says.
  • “Terrorists remain, and we are fighting against pockets of resistance… it will take months, not one day,” he adds.
  • “On the other hand, they don’t have supplies, they don’t have ammunition and they don’t have reinforcements,” he continues.

“It’s hard for them to take care of themselves, of their wounded, and other things. We have killed already a quarter of the Hamas terrorists at least, and the same number are wounded.”

After a dozen government ministers took part in a conference last night calling to resettle Gaza, a report claims that Defense Minister Yoav Gallant has promised the US that won’t happen on his watch.

According to a report in Axios, Gallant told US officials last week he wouldn’t allow settlements to be built in Gaza, citing four US and Israeli officials.

The report says Gallant met with US Ambassador to Israel Jack Lew, who pressed the defense chief over the potential use of a buffer zone along the border to rebuild settlements. Gallant reassured Lew that the buffer zone would not be used for any civilian resettlement and would be temporary, according to the report.
