This may put psychological pressure on Hamas – It will be long while we are preparing – or the two months of ground battle that the generals calculated is a concrete hypothesis: the invasion began between 25 and 27 October, and we will reach at least the end of December to be able to imagine the first reduction in hostilities.
The Tsahal General Staff’s calendar is certainly out of sync with that of the Americans and the international community: the number of Palestinian deaths among Hamas has exceeded 10,000 – and the Pentagon estimates civilian casualties are in the thousands – and the pressure on the Israeli government to grant a humanitarian truce, the president talked about that again yesterday.

Artillery continued to bomb the streets surrounding Al-Shifa Hospital – In Gaza City, where 70,000 evacuees gathered – the solar panels on the roof had been destroyed.
Military Intelligence reiterates that the multi-level bunker in which Hamas leaders are holed up was built over the years there. Yahya Sinwar, the head of the organization, whom the government in Jerusalem announced it wanted to eliminate, is also believed to be there.
