Israel’s armed forces is ‘ready’ to defeat the ‘bloodthirsty monsters’, the Israeli Prime Minister said, with a land, sea, and air offensive imminent.
Israeli tanks and troops have gathered on the border and are carrying out simulations ready to spring an invasion of Gaza at any time after Hamas terrorists killed 1,300 Israelis in a surprise attack last Saturday.
Israel Defence Forces (IDF) said Hamas was stopping civilians from leaving and released an aerial photo of two vehicles blocking the road as desperate Palestinians crammed into cars and donkey carts to escape the northern area.

Israel’s expanded emergency cabinet met in the military headquarters in Tel Aviv for the first time today as ministers began the meeting by standing for a minute’s silence in memory of those who had been killed.
Welcoming former opposition lawmaker Benny Gantz, who joined the government along with several members of his party last week, Netanyahu said all ministers were ‘working around the clock, with a united front’.
‘Hamas thought we would be demolished. It is we who will demolish Hamas,’ Netanyahu said, adding that the show of unity ‘sends a clear message to the nation, the enemy and the world’.
‘I have seen our amazing soldiers who are now on the front line,’ Netanyahu said. ‘They know that the entire nation is behind them. They understand the scope of the mission. They are ready to take action at any time in order to defeat the bloodthirsty monsters who have risen against us to destroy us.’
Israeli forces have been surrounding the Gaza Strip as it prepares for a land, sea, and air assault on Hamas, while the United States has sent a second aircraft carrier to the eastern Mediterranean to deter anyone ‘seeking to escalate’ the war.
In a statement released yesterday, the IDF said it is preparing to ‘expand the offensive’ with a ‘wide range of offensive operational plans’ which it says include a ‘joint and coordinated attack from the air, sea and land.’

Israeli army spokesperson Jonathan Conricus said on Saturday that Israeli forces are now ‘in formation… all around the Gaza Strip, in the south, in the centre and the north’ as Netanyahu met with troops.
Netanyahu’s office said in a statement yesterday, and an accompanying video showed him telling them: ‘You ready for the next stage? The next stage is coming.’
Ahead of the expected ground invasion of Gaza, which has seen some 400,000 civilians displaced, he urged onlookers to ‘remember how this started – all of this is Hamas made’, he said.
The World Health Organisation said the evacuation ‘could be tantamount to a death sentence’ for the more than 2,000 patients in northern hospitals, including newborns in incubators and people in intensive care.
Gaza’s hospitals are expected to run out of fuel for emergency generators within two days, according to the UN, which said that would endanger the lives of thousands of patients.
Sirens have been sounding in Tel Aviv for nine consecutive days as they blare out in warning of potential rocket strikes.

The President of the State of Israel recently visited the aftermath of the Be’eri kibbutz massacre where Israeli civilians were killed by Hamas terrorists in their bedrooms.
Isaac Herzog posted a message on X, formerly known as Twitter, alongside images of him visiting a blood-splattered home where he said it was ‘hard to breathe’.
‘The Garden of Eden turned into Hell,’ he said. ‘The horrific sights, the stench of death, homes burned and ruined, the walls that witnessed the slaughter of Jews in a brutal and vile murder spree by human monsters.
‘But even here, from the depths of the abyss, our voice is loud and clear: we will overcome. We will change the reality. We will restore and build anew, and rise up from the wreckage.’
