Israel 'dismantles' Hamas command hub in north Gaza, will focus on south now

| @indiablooms | 07 Jan 2024, 10:31 am

Jerusalem/IBNS: The Israel Defence Forces Saturday said it had "completed the dismantling" of Hamas's command structure in the northern Gaza Strip.

"We have completed the dismantling of the Hamas military framework in the northern Gaza Strip," army spokesperson Daniel Hagari told reporters.

He said that Palestinian members were now operating in the area only sporadically and "without commanders".

"Now the focus is on dismantling Hamas in the centre of the Gaza Strip and the south of the Gaza Strip," he said and added that the task will take time.

Israel vowed to crush Gaza's Hamas rulers after they launched the deadliest attack in the country's history on October 7.

The surprise attack resulted in the deaths of around 1,140 people, most of them civilians, according to an AFP tally based on official figures.

The Hamas members also took around 250 hostages, 132 of whom remain in captivity, according to Israel.

Israel responded by bombarding the territory and sending in ground forces, killing at least 22,722 people, most of them women and children, according to the health ministry in Hamas-run Gaza.
