Hamas Is Losing – Eyal Zisser (Israel Hayom)
Hamas is mired in a war for survival it can’t truly win. Its fight is to keep its head above water, nothing more.
During its rule, Hamas has turned Gaza into a disaster zone. The people there are suffering unprecedented economic despair with no hope for a better future. Now Hamas is sending Gaza’s youth to die on the border fence in a futile campaign.
Moreover, Hamas has never been more isolated in the Arab world and international arena and looks to be losing the support of the people in Gaza.
Israel’s battle with Hamas won’t end in a magic knock-out punch. It is an ongoing struggle where the side that is most steadfast will emerge victorious.
