Israeli Forces Battle to Oust Hamas Militants

Israel said Monday it carried out hundreds of airstrikes against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, while Israeli troops worked to oust Hamas militants still fighting in southern Israel.

Israeli military spokesperson Lt. Col. Richard Hecht told reporters that fighting was still ongoing in seven to eight places in Israel and that it was taking longer than expected to repel the incursion that began Saturday.

Another spokesperson, Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, said Israel had called up 100,000 reserve troops.

“Our job is to make sure that at the end of this war, Hamas will no longer have any military capabilities to threaten Israeli civilians with,” Conricus said in a video posted on X. “In addition to that, we are also to make sure that Hamas will not be able to govern the Gaza Strip.”
