He added that the Israelis “support the steps we are taking to destroy the remaining Hamas factions because they realize that if we do not do it now, they will.” We will have a repeat of the October 7 massacre That would be bad for both Israelis and Palestinians and for peace in the Middle East,” Netanyahu continued, also rejecting international criticism of plans to attack Rafah. “We are very close to victory.
