The war between Israel and the Palestinian group "Hamas" will last three years, Brigadier General of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and former minister Efi Aytam emphasized in an interview with the local radio station, the Jerusalem Post newspaper reported.

The past 48 hours have been some of the toughest since the start of the war with Hamas, with 12 IDF soldiers killed in fighting in the Gaza Strip, eight of them in the town of Rafah.

"The IDF has set itself the goal of destroying Hamas. Anyone who carries a weapon [in Gaza] must die. All weapons must be confiscated. Almost all of Gaza is in our hands and we can operate relatively peacefully. The war will last about three years – one year is behind us, the next year is the war in Lebanon, and the year after that is worrying about things related to Iran. There is no point in worrying about tomorrow while the action is still in its infancy," said Eytam, affirming the IDF's goal of defeating Hamas.
