Israel army chief says need to ‘press harder’ in military campaign in Gaza

Israel needs to “press harder” in its military campaign in the Gaza Strip, army chief Herzi Halevi said Saturday, a day after the United States vetoed a UN bid for a ceasefire in the war with Hamas.

“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 at a ceremony at the Western Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City.

Israel’s military must increase pressure on Hamas, whose system is showing signs of falling apart, Israel’s military chief said.

“We see terrorists who are surrendering, a sign of the collapse of the system, a sign that we need to press harder,” said Halevi during a meeting with soldiers.
