The conflict in the Gaza Strip will persist until the Palestinian militant group Hamas is eradicated and all hostages are freed, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on his social media account.

"The conditions for Israel to cease war have not changed: the destruction of Hamas's military and governmental capabilities, the release of all hostages, and ensuring that Gaza no longer poses a threat to Israel," Netanyahu stated.

Clear Conditions for Ceasefire

Netanyahu emphasized that Tel Aviv will insist on meeting all these conditions before any cessation of hostilities. He declared that ending the fighting and agreeing to a truce without Israel's terms is unacceptable.

The Prime Minister’s unwavering stance underscores Israel’s strategic approach towards Gaza, highlighting the importance of eliminating any potential future threats from the region.

Earlier, Yair Netanyahu, the Prime Minister's son, suggested initiating a large-scale Middle Eastern war for an independent Kurdistan.

This comment came as a critique of the leaders of Turkey and Iran, who have significant Kurdish populations, and their statements regarding the Gaza conflict.

Yair Netanyahu's proposal for a Kurdish state hints at the broader geopolitical dynamics at play, reflecting the intricate and often volatile nature of Middle Eastern politics. His remarks underscore the intersection of various national interests and the complex tapestry of regional alliances and enmities.
