It will be months before Israel defeats the Hamas movement, former Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said. The Times of Israel writes about this.
According to him, it will take even longer – years – to restore the country after the fighting.
“It will take a lot of time. War in the south and, if necessary, in the north or elsewhere could take months. And restoration will take years,” the politician predicted the duration of the conflict.
Earlier, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called the attack on a hospital in the Gaza Strip a “military massacre” by Israel.
