Israel’s Minister of Diaspora Affairs, Amichai Chikli, expressed his gratitude to the Indian leadership and the people of India for their unwavering support in Israel’s fight against Hamas.
“We extend our heartfelt thanks to the Indian leadership and the people of India for standing in solidarity with us as we confront the brutal and extremist forces of Hamas. This is not solely our battle; it’s a shared endeavor, and with your support, we are determined to emerge victorious,” Chikli conveyed.
He emphasized the shared values between India and Israel, emphasizing a commitment to life, goodness, and human values. Chikli noted that there are over 120 confirmed hostages and pledged every possible effort to secure their safe return, despite the ruthless nature of Hamas. He appealed to Hamas militants to lay down their arms and come forward, holding out a glimmer of hope for mercy.
In the town of Sderot, which bore the brunt of Hamas’ attacks, Mayor Alon Davidi called for the destruction of Hamas, likening the group to ISIS and Hezbollah. He emphasized the urgent need for a collective effort to eliminate this extremist threat.
Brigadier-General (Ret.) Gal Hirsch, the Coordinator for the Captives and Missing, expressed appreciation for the support extended by the United States. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken affirmed the United States’ solidarity with Israel as it defends itself. He also highlighted efforts to assist the people of Gaza and the impact of Hamas’ disregard for Palestinian suffering.
Blinken’s visit to Israel, his second in a short span, reflects the commitment of the United States to support Israel during a period of significant military action in Gaza. The Israeli Air Force continues to target the Gaza Strip, with the destruction of operational headquarters and mortar bomb launch sites. The military headquarters of Ali Kachi, a Hamas commander eliminated earlier, was also dismantled.
Israel’s President Isaac Herzog revealed a disturbing booklet found on the body of a Palestinian terrorist killed in a Gaza-area community. The booklet, titled “The Warrior’s Guide: Jihadi Version,” outlines tactics for entering citizens’ properties, inflicting torture, and utilizing hostages as human shields. It instructs terrorists to document their actions live and reflects the alarming methods employed by these extremist elements.
Numerous terrorists wore GoPro cameras to record and share their actions on social media platforms.
