Military expert Major General Fayez Al-Duwairi said that the conflict in Israeli military behavior on the ground is primarily due to the difference in point of view between the members of the War Council on the one hand and the Chief of Staff on the other, indicating that this conflict may have adverse results.
Al-Duwairi explained that this difference in viewpoints reveals the nature of the dispute between the two sides, especially since the Chief of Staff of the Israeli Army, Herzi Halevy, asked a lot about what will happen after the last day, indicating that the lack of clarity of vision for the Chief of Staff may lead to major military setbacks.
While the Israeli Defense Minister announced Yoav Galant Ending military operations in the northern part of the Strip after eliminating capabilities Islamic resistance movement (Hamas), Halevy says that there is a possibility of operations returning to this area.
Al-Duwairi added that Halevy's statements reflect his belief that Hamas has the ability to rebuild its power in the north, assuming that the Defense Minister's statements are correct.
He pointed out that this discrepancy was reflected on the ground, because as soon as the three divisions withdrew from the northern Gaza Strip, Hamas resumed directing missile attacks at Israeli cities and settlements.
The Israeli forces that withdrew from the north were stationed in the fence area or in depth Gaza coverIt kept itself in a position of readiness to engage in new operations according to developments on the ground, according to Al-Duwairi.
He added, “Accordingly, relaunching the missiles may bring operations back to the northern Gaza Strip, in light of talk that the launch took place from Beit Hanoun, which Israel entered on the first day of the ground operation, and witnessed fierce battles.”
Al-Duwairi pointed out that the launching of rockets once again reflects the lack of control that Israel is talking about, and he said that the current question is, “Were these rockets present in the north before the withdrawal of Israeli forces, or were they transferred to it?”
He added, “The missiles have bases that are transported on wheels, and Israel spoke of destroying 700 tunnel openings in the north, which means that these missiles that were launched on Monday and Tuesday were present in their locations, or that they were transported to the north before they were launched.”
Therefore, Al-Duwairi adds, the possibility of transporting missiles to the north “means that the tunnel network allows equipment to be transported from one place to another, and this enhances the ambiguity of the nature of this network.”
Israel was talking about the length of the network Hamas tunnels It reaches 550 kilometers, but the American “New York Times” recently spoke of an estimated distance of 560 to 720 kilometers, and 5,700 openings, some of which Al-Duwairi says are deceptive and some of which may lead to the entire network.
What is striking is the return of ground operations in the north and the focus on troop carriers, according to Al-Duwairi, who explained the targeting of the tankers by saying that Israel currently needs to deploy elite forces more than it needs tanks.
