• Israel Defense Minister Gallant declares, “HAMAS HAS LOST CONTROL IN GAZA.”

• Soldiers were photographed inside Hamas’s parliament building, with Israel flags flying.

• Additionally, the IDF disclosed the Rantisi Hospital housed a Hamas terrorist command center, and there is also evidence that hostages had also been placed there, as “suicide vests, rocket propelled grenades, and a variety of weapons, but also signs, such as baby bottles, that Hamas had held Israeli hostages there.”

As Israel makes its way through Gaza, pray for the defeat of Hamas, for this conflict, as Prime Minister Netanyahu said, “We must win, for this is a war of darkness against light. And light MUST win.”
