New Assessment: Militarily, Hamas is Defeated

Yossi Melman‘s “interim assessment” is that Hamas has been defeated.  In his Twitter stream @Yossi_Melman the journalist/historian (co-author of Spies Against Armageddon: Inside Israel’s Secret Wars and other books) says:

  1. My interim estimate; #Hamas was defeated. Tunnel project destroyed & so 70% of rockets. It crawled begging for a ceasefire (CF). It will take it years to recover.

    Israel seems to be moving toward a stand that critics globally may call a renewed occupation of Gaza: declaring the total right to take military action, as and when necessary, to stamp out threats.  But not to advance further or continue shelling and bombing targets.  That could and should reduce the civilian casualties among Palestinians.
    Yossi Melman also sees signs of more coordination beween Israel and Egypt’s government — led by the longtime army general, now, president, Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi.
  2. #Israel designed a new policy of taking unilateral steps in war & peace to be coordinated with Egypt & gave up the chance of a deal with Hamas.
