Minister Galant Hints If Gaza Violence Continues, Hamas Leaders May Be Targeted


Minister of Housing (Yesh Atid), IDF Major-General (retired) Yoav Galant took part in an Israel Defense Conference last week: “Hamas is the angel of death of the innocent residents of Gaza. He took two million people hostage. He is taking women and children to the line of fire with the intention of harming them and this will provoke international provocation.”

Galant also hinted at the possibility of the destruction of Hamas leaders by Israel: “If Hamas continues to make mistakes – the blood of Yahya Sinwar and senior officials are on their heads.”

“The minister added:” The Hamas organization has become increasingly distressed. The ways of terror are closing, and there is a very great difficulty in carrying out terror attacks. Through the tunnels is closing and I estimate that by the end of 2019 there will be no more tunnels from Gaza.

Regarding the humanitarian situation in Gaza, Minister Galant said that “an improved humanitarian situation in Gaza is an Israeli security interest, and the better the humanitarian situation in Gaza, the better the security situation will be.
