Israel to fight across all of Gaza after humanitarian pause: Defense minister
Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said Monday that once the humanitarian pause ends in Gaza, the army will resume its military operation throughout the entire Gaza Strip with greater strength, News.Az reports citing Anadolu Agency.
"You now have a few days. We will return to fighting. We will use the same amount of power and more," Gallant said while meeting with Israeli troops, according to the Times of Israel news website
"We will fight in the entire Strip," he added.
“Remember that while you are organizing and resting and investigating, the enemy is also doing the same,” he said, referring to the Palestinian group Hamas.
Qatar announced an agreement late Monday on extending a four-day humanitarian pause between Israel and Hamas in Gaza for an additional two days, under which further prisoner exchanges will be carried out.
