Israel-Gaza: 'We're no nearer the end of the violence'
Kieran Cuddihy is joined by General Sir Richard Barrons, Co-Chair of Universal Defence and Security Solutions for 'The Hard Shoulder' Newstalk podcast.
Israel has confirmed it is pulling some of its forces out of Gaza but it does appear there is no end in sight for the war with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suggesting the war will last “many months.”
General Sir Richard Barrons offers insightful analysis on the evolving nature of conflict in Gaza, particularly focusing on Israel's strategic operations against Hamas.
They discuss the conflicts' shift in gear and Israeli's targeted phase against the influence of Hamas. They touch on Israel's approach to hostages, ceasefire negotiations, and what the future holds for Palestinians and the challenge of rebuilding Gaza and maintaining security.
