Yoav Gallant: Israel’s Victory over Hamas in Gaza will Bring Peace with Saudi Arabia

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant addressed the Conference of Presidents at the ministry’s headquarters in Tel Aviv. His goal is to achieve victory against Hamas to bring about normalization and regional integration. He emphasized that destroying Hamas will actually advance normalization with countries like Saudi Arabia, leading to a new Middle East. However, the Saudis have demanded an immediate end to Israel’s war on Hamas and for Jerusalem to refrain from invading Rafah as conditions for returning to the normalization track.
