The Wall Street Journal writes this, citing estimates from US intelligence agencies
The Israeli forces killed between 20% and 30% of Hamas fighters. The Wall Street Journal writes this, citing estimates from US intelligence agencies in an article, soon relaunched by the Jerusalem Post, which recalls Israel’s objective of destroying the group which demonstrates “its resilience” after months of operations in the Gaza Strip following the October 7 attack in Israel.
According to US assessments reported by the WSJ, Hamas still has enough ammunition to continue hitting Israel and the Israeli military in Gaza for months and the group is attempting to reconstitute its forces in areas of Gaza City.
The Jerusalem Post recalls that last week Israeli forces reported the killing of nine thousand Hamas fighters out of approximately 30,000 forces estimated before the conflict.
