Israel's Army Chief advocates for a more forceful approach in the military campaign within the Gaza Strip, emphasizing the need to escalate efforts in light of recent developments.

Lieutenant General Halevi underscores the increasing success in neutralizing terrorists, with growing numbers killed, wounded, and surrendering.

“Every day, we’re seeing more and more terrorists killed, more and more terrorists wounded, and in recent days we’re seeing terrorists surrendering – this is a sign their network’s falling apart, a sign we need to press harder,” Halevi said.

His remarks, delivered during a ceremony in Jerusalem's Old City, signal a determination to intensify operations, viewing the surrender of terrorists as a sign of the collapsing network.

The army chief's call for heightened military pressure follows the United States' recent veto of a UN resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

This move comes at a critical juncture as the humanitarian situation in Gaza reaches a dire state.
