IDF Commander Gloats, The Plan Is To Flatten Gaza

There’s much hand wringing every day over governance in Gaza on “the day after” Israel’s war is over, but there is no reason to worry about that when the IDF has no intention of leaving anything standing in Gaza anyway. Yair Ben David, a commander in the 2908th Battalion of the Israeli army, said in a video posted on social media this week that his troops had “entered Beit Hanoun and did there as Shimon and Levi did in Nablus,” referring to the Biblical story in which all the male inhabitants of the city were massacred, reported Middle East Eye. “The entire Gaza should resemble Beit Hanoun,” he added, referring to the ruined city in northern Gaza.

David said that the destruction was “only the beginning” and would instill “fear among the nations around us, in the cities of Lebanon, in the cities of Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), and among all those sitting around us who think it’s possible to harm the dignity of the people of Israel.”
