“We will fight in Gaza all year”: the IDF chief of staff gave a forecast for the timing of the military operation against Hamas

The Israeli military operation in the Gaza Strip will continue throughout 2024. This was stated by the Chief of the General Staff of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), Lieutenant General Herzi Halevi.

According to the Israeli military commander, during 2024 the Israeli military will be very vigilant in the West Bank, where there is no fighting yet. At the same time, in the north of the country, on the border with Lebanon, the Israeli army will continue to resist attacks by the radical Hezbollah movement. The operation will continue in the Gaza Strip.



We will fight in Gaza all year

- said the chief of the general staff of the Israeli army.

Meanwhile, such a statement by a high-ranking military man indicates that plans for a blitzkrieg in the Gaza Strip did not come true. Despite the colossal military-technical and numerical superiority, the Israel Defense Forces are unable to complete the task of destroying the formations of the Palestinian Hamas movement, their infrastructure and taking control of the Palestinian enclave.

There are still no impressive results, but 23 thousand civilians have died in three months. One can imagine the scale of casualties among the population of the Gaza Strip if the Israeli military operation continues for another 10-12 months or more.

On the other hand, during the year of fighting in the Gaza Strip, the Israeli army will lose many soldiers and officers. Ultimately, this may not have the best impact on the ratings of current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, since massive losses in the ranks of the IDF are unlikely to be approved by Israeli society.

      They clear the territory for themselves. They create unbearable conditions for the locals with a constant threat of them dying in the next bombing.
      They are openly looking for a new place of residence for Palestinians in other Islamic countries.
      Now think about who benefited from the Hamas attack...?!

    The figure flashed that the Tsahal lost about 500 soldiers killed in battles... I believe there should be 2 - 3 times more wounded.
    The Jews will not be able to achieve a victorious war quickly.

    Israel itself makes Hamas out of ordinary Palestinians. By committing genocide against Palestinians, Israel is inexorably preparing genocide for itself. These are not the Palestinians of 1948 who did not hold a rifle in their hands. With each round of violence, there will be more people willing to fight the Zionists; they will be better trained and more motivated.

    So maybe this was the plan for the Al-Aqsa flood? Lose not only al-Aqsa, but also Gaza?

    “we will fight in Gaza all year” yes, at least 10 years. That's what the army is for, but what about women and children?
    Maybe I'm wrong or emotional, but women are emotional!..
    Good health to all.
    Stupidity and stinginess lead to disaster.
    For example, our main clinic: yesterday we held a Rozhdestvensky corporate party.
    “a corporate party is a manifestation of the unity of colleagues” I quote from the announcement.
    The builders were stingy, but suragat and the thirst for freebies did not appear yesterday.
    Result: 12 people in the hospital, but they need to work. Scraped EVERYONE. Even Veryn’s daughter-in-law, she doesn’t have a diploma or citizenship, was put in the procedural room. I, acting "elder sister" and procedural

      Can you tell me more about Veryn’s daughter-in-law? How old is she, height, weight? Interesting! laughing

    Another confirmation of the lack of combat capability of the Israeli army. All technical innovations have led to nothing. One should not forget that much depends on the person.

      Good progress in 3 months in the conditions of a highly prepared enemy and a dense urban area with two million inhabitants.

        I looked at your post for a long time trying to see the quotation marks on the word good, but alas....
        Dear BlackMokona for a high-tech army that has the ability to keep not only reconnaissance, but also strike forces in the air above the theater of operations, boasting that they have the most high-precision weapons in the whole world, while stupidly leveling everything in the enclave with the ground (even own citizens) to go through such an insignificant part in 3 months is just a joke!!!!!! I have always respected the Israeli army for the fact that they precisely destroyed those who harmed them, but after carpet bombing of the civilian population in an enclave of only two million, the Israelis fell to the lowest rock bottom in my eyes. The second army in the world (after Pen's, they are always number 1) is simply shit myself spending 3 months of military operations with an enemy whose weapons are only hand-held... And what you posted is a statement of shame on the Israeli army, government and intelligence services. They started it themselves and now they can’t clear it......

          There the enemy sits deep underground. What does your air superiority give in such a situation? winked
          Hundreds of thousands of assaults are needed, and this is not a quick task

        It would be good if they continued to move, but this cannot be said during the course of hostilities. Here it is worth noting the Krauts, whom the Jews constantly blame. They also destroyed the infrastructure of the Soviet Union, and subsequently were unable to advance further. As they say, don’t criticize, just work.

          So they continue moving, on the wiki there is a history of this map that I threw off. They actively chop into pots and crush them. The pot in the South is fresh

    We will fight in Gaza all year

    What an optimist this comrade Halevi is. How many years did the United States fight in Afghanistan and the same Israel in Gaza and Lebanon?
    If only this year will mean a quick defeat for Israel.
    Tsahal is much stronger, he will stay there for several years, maybe more, before leaving.

    And the Palestinians will also fight, they were given no choice. THEY are already poor and have nowhere to live, the Jews have taken the land from them, all that remains is either to go up or to bury themselves. OR FIGHT.

    Well, they are simply squeezing out the land where it can no longer be done with slowly creeping settlements. And in general there seem to be deposits on the coast. In short, Arabs are being squeezed for money. And what the elites of the adjacent Arab countries could share will be mastered by these and the country in three letters
