Today marked 13 days since Hamas gunmen caught Israel off guard as they stormed out of the Gaza Strip.

The horror massacre, and Israel’s defence, has cost thousands their lives and seen thousands more injured.

It’s also feared hostages could be being held in Hamas’ mysterious 311-mile maze of tunnels riddled with deadly traps.

And today Israel’s defence minister Yoav Gallant sent a strong message to the tens of thousands of troops waiting on the Gaza border.

He told the soldiers: “There is no forgiveness for this thing. Only total annihilation of Hamas organisation, terror infrastructures, everything that has to do with terrorists and whoever sent them.

“It will take a week, it will take a month, it will take two months, until we eliminate them.

“You are not alone in battle. We trust you and count on you.

“Carry on training while there is time, get organised, be prepared, the command will come.

“Thanks guys, we count on you, good luck.

“And anyone who now sees Gaza from a distance will soon see it from inside, I promise you.”

Gallant’s words came as Economy Minister Nir Barakat told ABC News the Israeli military has been given the “green light” to move into Gaza whenever it’s ready.

Israel also warned more than one million Palestinians should evacuate from the northern areas to the south.

This is said to have sparked fear from within of a humanitarian crisis – after electricity and other supplies were cut off.

Israeli authorities say at least 1,400 people have died in Israel, while and 3,785 people have died in Gaza, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.

‘POGROM’

At least nine Brits have so far been confirmed dead following Hamas’ brutal attacks.

The latest confirmation was Manchester United fan Yonatan Rapoport – who was killed in an attack on the kibbutz Be’eri.

The British-Israeli citizen was set to take his son to his first game at Old Trafford next month, BBC reports.

A further eight Brits remain missing, according to the UK government.

Rishi Sunak, who is in Israel on a two-day visit, this week branded Hamas’ slaughters a “pogrom” as he vowed: “We stand with Israel”.

As families of some of those missing watched on, the Prime Minister told the Commons: “The attacks in Israel last weekend shocked the world.

“Over 1,400 people murdered one by one, over 3,500 wounded, almost 200 taken hostage.”

He went on: “The elderly, men, women, children, babes in arms, murdered, mutilated, burned alive.

“We should call it by its name: it was a pogrom.”
