In an article for the weekly supplement of the Hebrew newspaper "Yedioth Ahronoth," Nahum Barnea dives into the Israeli ground operation in Gaza. While acknowledging the progress in addressing tunnels and engaging with armed Hamas elements, he also highlights the formidable challenges posed by the fighters, Khaberni reported.

Barnea raises pertinent questions regarding Israel's capacity to withstand U.S. pressure for a ceasefire, particularly if discussions involve a potential hostage deal. He advocates for a grounded perspective, emphasizing that even if significant Hamas figures are neutralized, the organization won't vanish. Barnea underscores the significance of recognizing U.S. leadership in the unfolding scenario, pointing out that US President Joe Biden's domestic setbacks intensify the urgency for an imminent Gaza ceasefire.

In his comprehensive evaluation of the Gaza ground operation, Barnea concludes that the envisioned victory is regrettably not within reach.
