Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with representatives from the HaGevurah and Tikvah forums, which bring together families of those killed in the Gaza war and kidnapped Israelis.

The meeting occurred at the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem.

During the discussion, Netanyahu stated, "The notion of halting hostilities before achieving all war objectives is unacceptable. Whether or not a deal is reached, we will enter Rafah and dismantle the Hamas battalions to secure a decisive victory for Israel."

According to the Prime Minister's Office, family representatives urged the government to stand firm against international pressure and continue military efforts until victory is achieved.
