Israel goes on full offensive in Gaza

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant announced on October 10 that the Israeli military were launching a "full-fledged offensive” on the Gaza Strip.

"Hamas wanted change in the Gaza Strip, it will change 180 degrees from what they thought. They will regret this moment, Gaza will never return to what it was. Whoever comes to behead, kill women and Holocaust survivors — we will destroy them with all our might, without compromise,” Gallant said.
