The IDF Chief of Staff Lt Gen Herzi Halevi has told reservist officers at the Southern Command base in Beersheba that the defence forces are, at present focusing efforts on targeting the Hamas officials.
“In any area that we know there are Hamas members, Hamas leaders, even if there are restrictions, we strike… accurately and with great power,” Halevi said, according to The Times of Israel.
