Middle East Monitor  /  October 8, 2023

Following security cabinet meeting held early on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the Israeli occupation will “halt electricity, fuel and goods transfer to Gaza.”

Netanyahu said that the security officials, who met and discussed the situation, decided to “destroy the military and governmental capabilities of Hamas.”

The head of the most extremist Israeli government said: “We are heading into a long and gruelling war,” claiming that the “war was forced upon us by a murderous attack by Hamas.”

He added: “The first stage is coming to a close at this time with the destruction of the majority of enemy forces that have infiltrated into our territory.”

Netanyahu noted that they “have started the offensive formation which will continue without reservation and without respite until the goals are achieved. We will restore security to the citizens of Israel and prevail.”
