War between Israel and Hamas: the war will continue “until all its goals are achieved,” Netanyahu threatens

He says he is determined. Israel’s war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip will continue until “all its goals are achieved,” including the destruction of the Palestinian Islamist movement, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Saturday night.

“We cannot achieve these goals without continuing ground operations,” which “have so far been necessary to achieve results,” he added during his first news conference since a week-long truce between Israel and Hamas ended Friday morning and the Israeli military resumed operations, including bombing, in the Gaza Strip.

“The fighting will continue until victory,” Netanyahu insisted. “In the North, we respond to all attacks and remove enemies from the border, and we continue our approach to victory in the North and South. We are committed to restoring the security situation in both the North and the South,” he continued.

“Deadlock in negotiations”

On Saturday, the Israeli army bombed the Gaza Strip, where the death toll has risen. The Israeli government has deplored a “stalemate” in talks with Hamas, a day after a truce with the Palestinian Islamist movement expired.

The armed wing of Hamas and its affiliated Islamic Jihad also announced that they fired a “volley of rockets” at several Israeli cities on Saturday, particularly Tel Aviv, without causing any casualties.

The Israeli army said it had hit “more than 400 targets” in the small, congested Palestinian territory since fighting resumed on Friday morning, including 50 in the Khan Younes area (south).

The health ministry of Hamas, which rules the besieged Palestinian territory, now reports more than 240 dead and 650 wounded since the end of the truce.

The war between Israel and Hamas was sparked by an unprecedented deadly attack carried out by the Palestinian Islamist movement in Israel on October 7, which authorities said killed 1,200 people, mostly civilians. Since October 7, Israeli strikes have killed more than 15,000 people, including more than 6,150 under the age of 18, according to the Hamas government.
