The occupation is preparing for the largest military operation since the 2014 war in Gaza, Haaretz stated.
Haaretz explained that this new fighting system focuses on resolving the war within a short period of time, as the IDF prepared for a short round of fighting characterized by violence.
To achieve this goal, the Israeli army was equipped with special weapons, including weapons that can be specially used inside tunnels.
The IDF are also planning to fire gunshots that would destroy the civilian infrastructure in the Strip.
