Gaza Division Commander Brig. Gen. Yehuda Fuchs said: “The civilians of the Gaza Strip are victims of the rule of Hamas, the terrorist organization funded by Iran. Instead of taking care of the well-being of the people of Gaza, Hamas invests its money in terror and exploits its population.
"We’re here, a strong military. We’ll continue to deter the enemy and thwart acts of terror so that you arrive safely at school and study for your exams. I wear this uniform so that you can go to school - that is my mission every day. Thousands of soldiers from intelligence, armor, air force, and infantry are here to guard you. It is your responsibility to obey the orders and instructions of the Home Front Command and to pay attention to those around you."
