Israel - Hamas Conflict


Jack Watling, senior research fellow for Land Warfare at the Royal United Services Institute said: “It is realistic for the IDF to degrade Hamas’s military capabilities through their ground operation by killing its fighters and destroying their stockpiles of equipment. Furthermore, the removal of Hamas from control of Gaza can deny them the infrastructure that they had used to pose a serious and sustained threat to Israel. The ideology will not be destroyed, nor will Hamas as an organization. Nevertheless, Israel probably feels it can better manage a terrorist group than a hostile proto-state.”
