Israel Still Has a Lot of Work to Do

(Institute for National Security Studies-X) Yohanan Tzoreff - Hamas leader Khalil Hayya clarified that Hamas had only three hostages from the group of women and children. Hamas officials continue to estimate that Israel will be willing to pay high prices for its people and that time is working in their favor. In their opinion, Israel's interest in the release of its people, the pressure of the hostages' families, and the public's broad support for these families will ultimately be decisive in favor of a deal that will meet the new conditions set by Hamas. Hamas' arrogance does not show that it has internalized or recognized the change in the attitude of the Israeli public toward it. Which makes it clear that Israel still has a lot of work to do.
