Israel Announces Dismantling of Hamas Command Structure

Israel has officially declared the successful dismantling of the Hamas command structure in northern Gaza, according to Army spokesman Daniel Hagari.

He stated that militants in the region are now operating sporadically, lacking a unified framework and commanders.

This development marks a shift in focus for the Israel Defence Forces (IDF), with attention turning towards central and southern Gaza.

Criticism Mounts Amid Offensive Tactics

The Israeli offensive was initiated in response to a surprise attack by Hamas gunmen on October 7, resulting in 1,200 casualties and 240 hostages.

While Israel asserts the accomplishment of its objectives in northern Gaza, it faces criticism for employing tactics such as heavy bombardment of civilian areas.

The Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza reports a death toll exceeding 22,000.

Israel claims to have killed approximately 8,000 militants in north Gaza.

Shift in Strategy and Lessons Learned

With most of Gaza’s 2.3 million population displaced, Army spokesman Daniel Hagari emphasizes a different approach as the focus shifts southwards.

He vaguely mentions that “lessons have been learned” without providing details.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu affirms Israel’s commitment to eliminating Hamas, recovering hostages, and ensuring Gaza poses no threat to Israel.

Netanyahu underscores the need to continue the effort until “complete victory is achieved.”
