civilians and instructs the Israeli forces conducting the operation to “act accordingly.”
He states, “We are fighting a terror group, not the Gazan population. It is the obligation of our forces to ensure the safety of all civilians in the vicinity.”
Rear Adm. Hagari further emphasizes that the primary goal of the operation is to target Hamas and other militant factions that are attacking Israeli civilians, and added that the IDF is doing everything in its power to minimize the harm to Gaza’s civilians.
The spokesman also expresses hope that the military operation will bring an end to the current round of violence between Israel and the Palestinian factions. The hope, he states, is that the operation will “remove the threat of rocket fire from Israeli citizens as soon as possible.”
The current exchange of fire between Israel and the Palestinian factions began when Hamas launched a barrage of rockets and mortars at Israeli communities earlier this week. So far, the violence has left 24 Palestinians dead and more than 200 injured in Gaza, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
Israeli forces have responded by hitting more than 150 targets in the Palestinian enclave with airstrikes and artillery. The IDF has pledged to protect Israeli civilians from Hamas rockets and has called up 9,000 reservists to help with the operation.

is doing its utmost to spare innocent civilians the effects of its intense military operation against Gaza-infiltrating terrorist groups.
The Israeli military spokesperson said that “the IDF will do its utmost to make an effort to avoid harming innocent civilians as much as possible. We are targeting terrorist infrastructure and not aiming at the population.” He added that the IDF is using precision-guided weapons and that, “since we are using advanced technology, we are able to be precise and accurate even in densely populated urban areas.”
The spokesman also noted that the IDF is coordinating with the UN and other international organizations to enable the safe passage of civilians in need of medical assistance. He concluded by warning that the “terror group” remains a serious threat to the security of Israel, and that the IDF will continue its efforts to neutralize it and protect Israeli citizens.
In response to the situation in Gaza, countries around the world are voicing their condemnations. The UN has urged all parties to respect international humanitarian law and to take all feasible precautions to avoid civilian casualties. The EU has expressed its concern over the heightened violence and called for de-escalation, while urging the parties to take concrete steps to ensure the safety and protection of civilians.
The latest round of hostilities in Gaza has caused great suffering and grief in the area, with many civilian casualties. It is an urgent priority that both parties to the conflict take all necessary measures to protect innocent civilians and enable an immediate de-escalation of the situation.
“We are trying to minimize the harm to the civilian population,” Hagari said. “We don’t want to harm them, we are trying to take [action] against the terrorists.”
The statement comes as the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) continues its air and ground offensive against terror groups operating in Gaza. The military operation was launched in response to rockets and other attacks from Hamas and other terror groups.
In keeping with IDF’s stated policy, Hagari emphasized that Israel is acting to protect its citizens and not targeting civilians in Gaza.
“The goal is to destroy terrorist targets and not to hurt civilians,” Hagari said. “We are calling on the people of Gaza to evacuate to save themselves from being hit by mistake.”
The IDF has reportedly implemented precautionary measures to give civilians time to evacuate and avoid being harmed in the conflict. Humanitarian aid has also been dispatched to the region.
The incident highlights the Israeli military’s commitment to minimizing civilian casualties while taking action against terror groups. It remains to be seen whether this strategy will be successful in protecting civilians and restoring peace to the region.
