Israeli Occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fears that far-right members of his government will reject a potential captive exchange deal with Hamas, in addition to a potential exit of war cabinet member Benny Gantz, who supports the deal, which will lead increasing clashes with the Biden administration - as reported by Haaretz newspaper.
The newspaper reported a "split" in the Israeli Occupation government, a group led by Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, supported by the current Chief of Staff, Herzi Halevy, senior officers of Shin Bet, all who support the idea of intensifying military operations and pressure against Hamas, claiming that it is the only way which Hamas Leader, Yahya Al-Sinwar, will make concessions.
Three factors that will determine the success of the military operation launched by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) in the Gaza Strip: the release of prisoners held by the Hamas, the destruction of their tunnel network, and the elimination of senior Hamas leaders in the Strip.
Reportedly, the Occupation's government insisted on the release of all 70 women and children who were included in the initial list, as a minimum, before concluding any deal with Hamas.
