israel hamas war benjamin netanyahu sinwar hamas surrender now

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday urged members of the Palestinian militant group, Hamas, not to sacrifice their lives for the group’s chief Yahya Sinwar in Gaza and also called on the militant group to surrender to Israeli troops. According to a Times of Israel report, Netanyahu made this comment after Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi said that there are signs that Hamas is collapsing.

“In the past few days, dozens of Hamas terrorists have surrendered to our forces. They laid down their weapons and handed themselves over to our brave fighters,” the Israeli PM said in a video statement.

“It will take more time, the war is still in full force, but this is the beginning of the end of Hamas,” he said, “I say to the terrorists of Hamas: it is over. Don’t die for vermilion. Now surrender.”

A senior IDF official also said on Sunday that the military had identified “signs of Hamas breaking” amid its continued offensive in the Gaza Strip, the report said.

“The extent of the destruction and damage creates command and control problems (for Hamas). There are areas in the Gaza Strip that are no longer under Hamas military control, the official said.

However, the officer said they were “no closer” to the end of the fighting.

“We continue to operate with great intensity, and work to eliminate entire battalions of Hamas,” he said. He said nearly half of Hamas’s 24 battalion commanders had been killed in airstrikes and other operations.
