Israel Promised To “Finish The Job” In Gaza

by Tommy Grant

Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that he promises to “finish the job” in Gaza. The goal is to totally and completely destroy Hamas, the terrorist organization that rules over the Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip.

The country’s “very survival is at stake” and a “total victory” is within reach, Netanyahu claimed. He also insisted that no amount of international pressure and criticism over civilian casualties would stop Israel from achieving its goal.

Netanyahu also vowed to bring the offensive into Rafah, a major city near Gaza’s border with Egypt and the last refuge of some 1.5 million people, in a video address to the pro-Israel AIPAC organization in Washington on Tuesday.

“To win this war, we must destroy the remaining Hamas battalions in Rafah,” Netanyahu said. “If not, Hamas will regroup, rearm, and reconquer Gaza and then we’re back to square one. And that’s an intolerable threat that we cannot accept…We will finish the job in Rafah while enabling the civilian population to get out of harm’s way,” he added.

The Israeli prime minister repeatedly rejected international calls for a ceasefire, arguing that the IDF must clear out the remaining Hamas strongholds. -RT

Even though the harsh rhetoric continues out of Israel, the claim is that there are still no signs of genocide of the Palestinian people. So far, estimates are that over 31,000 Palestinians have been killed since the war erupted on October 7th.

Netanyahu, however, claimed that since the beginning of the war, the Israeli Defense Force has “taken measures to minimize civilian casualties that no other army has taken in history. We will destroy Hamas, free our hostages, and ensure that Gaza doesn’t ever pose a threat to Israel again,” he added.
