JERUSALEM (CC) - During a press conference on Monday, Israel's Defense Minister, Yoav Gallant, threatened Yahya Sinwar, the reputed Osama Bin Laden of the U.S. terrorist-designated organization, Hamas. But the fates of the boots on the ground and the leaders of the terrorists are the same, according to him.

"Surrender or die. There is no third option," Gallant declared. “Whoever surrenders, his life is spared.”

Israel's Defense Force is near collapsing Hamas's best battalions, according to the Defense Minister.

“We have encircled the last strongholds of Hamas in Jabaliya and Shejaiya. The battalions that were considered invincible, that prepared for years to fight us, are on the verge of being dismantled,” Gallant declared.

The military and the Shin Bet, Israel's Security Agency that is headquartered in Tel Aviv, and better known as Shabak, reported that they have arrested over 500 terrorists in the Gaza Strip since early November.

Israel's Military Intelligence Directorate’s Unit 504 and Shin Bet are questioning the Palestinian terrorists, who belong to both Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

Many of them were found hiding in civilian establishments, schools, hospitals, restaurants and other frequented places.

Hamas is reputedly the larger of the two terrorist-designated organizations, both so-labeled by the U.S. and other nations, while the terrorists are also currrently garnering support from most of the Arab world.

Hamas is considered the ruling group that is often at odds with the Palestinian Authority, the organization that is led by Mahmoud Abbas. The PA is not a terrorist-designated organization.

Islamic Jihad fought Israel's forces, for three days, in August 2022. Hamas did not join the Jihadis then. Maybe that was the plan of attack. Now, the two appear to be functioning together.

Gallant also spoke on the co-functioning of Israel and the U.S.

“I take into consideration everything the US asks and says, and take seriously, along with all the members of the cabinet, what America is doing,” Gallant said. “We will find a way to help the Americans help us.”

Both the U.S. and Israel have said that the goal is to fight until Hamas is gone. That the war will end once Israel has achieved its goals, including eliminating Hamas as a terrorist threat to the Jewish people.

Christian Commander prays that the Gospel of Peace will take full force in Jerusalem.
