Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared during a visit to IDF troops that half of Hamas’s terrorists had been killed or wounded, and 18 of its 24 battalions had been destroyed.

He emphasized the necessity of “total victory” to ensure Israel’s security and pave the way for future peace agreements.

This statement was made amidst reports of U.S. pressure on Israel to accept a ceasefire without fully dismantling Hamas.

Netanyahu said, “Total victory is essential because it ensures the security of Israel. Total victory is the only way in which we can ensure additional historic peace agreements, which await. Total victory will strike a mortal blow against the axis of evil: Iran, Hezbollah, the Houthis and – of course – Hamas.”

“Therefore, there is no substitute for total victory. One need only to think of what would happen without total victory: The displaced will not return, the next massacre will only be a matter of time and Iran, Hezbollah and others will simply celebrate here and destroy the Middle East; therefore, there is no substitute for total victory,” he continued.

“After having met you and your commanders in the field in the Gaza Strip several times, I would like to tell you – I am impressed by your heroism, intensity and determination, and by our ability to achieve this victory, which is coming. By our calculation, as of today we have already destroyed – meaning, we have either killed or wounded – over half of their force. We have destroyed 18 of their 24 battalions,” revealed the Prime Minister.

“We are engaged in active demilitarization by conducting raids against the remaining terrorists and we are destroying the underground networks. We are on the way to total victory and I want to tell you that we are committed to it and will not give up on it. We will not stop the war without achieving this goal of total victory, which will restore security to both the south and the north,” he explained.

The U.S. seeks a temporary pause in fighting, hoping to make it harder for Israel to resume military operations.

Israeli leaders, however, remain committed to a sustained effort to dismantle Hamas’s military capabilities and maintain regional stability.

Israeli government spokesman Eylon Levy said, “our forces will, of course, turn their attention towards the remainder, including the south of Gaza. We think it’s very important for the whole security arhitecture of the region that Hamas be totally destroyed inside the Gaza Strip, and that Gaza remain permanently demilitarized in order to prevent any resurgence of the terror threat, which would only undermine regional stability and security.”

The situation remains tense, with ongoing discussions about the conflict’s resolution and the potential for further military actions.
