An Israeli minister has told troops massing at the border that they will soon see Gaza ‘from the inside’ sparking fears a ground invasion is imminent.
Yoav Gallant, who is the country’s defence minister, told Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) soldiers to ‘get organised, be ready’ to move into the Palestinian territory.
Another cabinet minister has claimed that the military has been given the ‘green light’ to invade the territory whenever it is ready, warning that the tunnels dug by Hamas would become the ‘world’s biggest cemetery’.
Thousands of Israeli troops have gathered at the border with Gaza since pushing back Hamas terrorists that brutally massacred hundreds of people in a cross-border attack on October 7.
Since then the Jewish state has pummelled Gaza with airstrikes, killing thousands of people, and has warned people living in the north of the territory to leave for their own safety.
