While the Biden administration is trying to force Israel into another ceasefire extension, it is becoming clear that Israel’s government is preparing to push forward with its goal of wiping out Hamas.
Minister in the War Cabinet and former Defense Minister and Chief of Staff Benny Gantz gave the following remarks about the situation: “We are in complex moment, with a time window within the framework of the deal to return our kidnapped. We will work to make the most of it as much as possible. At the same time, we are prepared and ready to return to combat, at any given moment, even right now. The State of Israel is conducting a complex, multi-arena campaign.”
“They rose against us to destroy us, and they still want to do that. We have no choice. We must keep fighting,” Gantz declared. “We’re not seeking revenge, but to secure our future. We will not stop until we bring security and remove the threat to our citizens in the south and north.”
“The fighting will continue, and will expand wherever it is needed throughout the Gaza Strip. There will be no cities of refuge. Until the residents of Be’eri and Sderot, Shlomi and Metula will be able to safely return to the land that is part of them and of us. Until our sons and daughters return to their homes.”
If Gantz is onboard, Bibi will have to finally go against the Biden administration – which can be considered a small miracle.
