Israel’s Ongoing Battle with Hamas: A Six-Month Update

It has been nearly six months since the deadly conflict between Israel and Hamas began, resulting in thousands of casualties and widespread destruction in Gaza. Israel’s goal of eliminating Hamas and destroying its tunnel network has come at a high cost, with many civilian casualties and massive displacement. While the IDF claims to have killed thousands of Hamas fighters and destroyed significant portions of the tunnel infrastructure, experts suggest that the top leadership of Hamas remains intact. The extent of the damage in Gaza is staggering, with over 33,000 people killed and more than 1.7 million internally displaced. As the conflict continues, the true impact and effectiveness of Israel’s military campaign remain unclear, raising questions about the ultimate goals and outcomes of the war.
