“Remember that the opportunity you have is coming to an end soon and the decision is in your hands,” reads the leaflet, once again urging Gazans to head south.
“If you have reliable information about the whereabouts of the abductees, whether they are alive or dead, or if you are detaining the abductees, we offer you the opportunity to inform us,” the Israeli military said.
Israel is offering a reward for information leading to the discovery of the hostages. “We recommend that you contact us quickly and provide us with accurate information and we will guarantee you and your family a financial reward for a better future,” the leaflet said, adding that Israel guarantees “absolute discretion” to anyone who passes on the information. .
Israeli ground operation
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) intensified ground operations in Gaza overnight on Saturday. Since then, according to Brigadier General Yitzchak Cohen, the IDF, quoted by The Times of Israel, has succeeded in “eliminating Hamas’ ability to attack its strategic facilities and destroy its explosives stockpiles, underground tunnels and other facilities.”
“Hamas chose the war, we did not choose it,” Kohen, who heads the 162nd division of the Israeli army, said on the border with the Gaza Strip. According to him, she received an important task five days ago, which is to “definitely destroy Hamas”.
