The next step will involve carrying out "targeted strikes" against individual leaders of the HAMAS group.
American officials believe that the current stage of the Israel Defense Forces' ground operation in Gaza will continue until January, as reported by Sarbaz.kz citing CNN.
The next step will involve carrying out "targeted strikes" against individual leaders of the Hamas group.
According to one source, US authorities are concerned about the actions of the Israeli army and the potential consequences of its actions in the coming weeks. CNN reports that the US warned Israel against repeating the destructive actions that the IDF had taken in the northern enclave, resulting in numerous civilian casualties.
On December 5, Israel announced the start of the third stage of the conflict with Hamas. The fighting is taking place, including in the largest city in the southern Gaza Strip – Khan Yunis – where, according to Israeli intelligence, the majority of militants are located.
It's worth noting that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu previously stated that the war's objective is the complete demilitarization of the Gaza Strip and that Israel would restore full control over the region without entrusting it to international forces.
