Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant says Israeli forces will soon switch to a less intense phase of operations in northern Gaza, APA reports citing Times of Israel.

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Gallant says the IDF will be shifting from what he called the “intense maneuvering phase of the war” toward “different types of special operations.”

“We’re close to the next phase in the north, including Gaza City,” Gallant says.

Following the publication of the interview, Gallant’s office issues a statement clarifying that the transition would start “soon.”

On Saturday, the IDF said it had completed the dismantlement of Hamas’s “military framework” in the northern Gaza Strip.

Intense fighting continues in central Gaza and the south.
