A senior Israeli official has warned the leader of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas against a large-scale operation in the besieged Gaza Strip, asserting that the Tel Aviv regime is prepared for such an onslaught.
“Let me say it to be clear: [The Hamas leader] Yahya Sinwar’s time is limited. He won’t finish his life in a retirement home,” Israeli Housing and Construction Minister Yoav Gallant said at the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference on Wednesday.
“There will be another large campaign in Gaza,” Gallant said, claiming that it will be Israel, not Hamas, that decides when.
The recent rhetoric comes following the latest escalation of violence by the Tel Aviv regime against the coastal enclave in which Israeli airstrikes and shells reduced Palestinian buildings to rubble and sent fireballs and plumes of smoke into the sky.
The fresh spate of the Israeli military aggression saw 14 people killed and several others injured in 48 hours.
