Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister, visited the Gaza Strip on Sunday, where he assured that the operation will continue until complete victory over the Palestinian movement Hamas.

"We are here in Gaza with our heroic fighters. We are working hard to recover our kidnapped citizens, and ultimately we will get them all back. We will continue until the end, until victory," Netanyahu said during the visit to the enclave.

According to the Israeli prime minister, the country pursues three objectives: "to eliminate Hamas, return all the hostages, and ensure that Gaza is no longer a threat."

On November 24, at 05:00 GMT, the four-day humanitarian truce that Netanyahu negotiated with Hama, which rules the Gaza Strip, came into effect after weeks of hostilities.

The truce agreement, brokered by Qatar, stipulates the release of 50 Israeli hostages, mostly women and children, in exchange for 150 Palestinian prisoners, and the entry of humanitarian aid, medical supplies and fuel into Gaza.

According to Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen, Israel will resume hostilities after the end of the ceasefire and will continue them "until the end of Hamas rule in Gaza and the release of all hostages."

The new spiral of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, unleashed by the surprise attack launched by Hamas on 7 October, has so far caused some 1,200 deaths and nearly 5,500 injuries in Israel and more than 14,800 deaths and some 36,000 injuries in Gaza, according to the latest official data.
