Prime Minister Netanyahu and the Presidential envoy discussed the range of issues regarding the war while emphasizing the release of the hostages.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Netanyahu visited the IDF Home Front Command training base for the Rescue and Instruction Brigade at Zikim, where he was briefed on the heroic battle that occurred in several locations simultaneously on Saturday, October 7th.

During the visit, Netanyahu proclaimed: "Do you remember that they told us not to advance into Gaza? We advanced. They told us not to reach the outskirts of Gaza City? We reached them. They told us not to enter Shifa – we entered it. It is in this spirit that we say something simple: There is no place in Gaza that we cannot reach. There are no hideouts. There is no shelter or refuge for the Hamas murderers. We will reach and eliminate Hamas, and we will bring back our hostages. These are two sacred missions.
