An Israeli defense official vowed that Gaza will be wiped out and reduced to a “city of tents” in a punishing “ground maneuver” for the unprecedented attack against the Jewish state.

The unnamed defense official according to New York Times, told Israel’s Channel 13 that the Palestinian territory, which includes more than 2 million residents, would be reduced to rubble in the decimating blow.

“Gaza will eventually turn into a city of tents. There will be no buildings. The ground maneuver will surprise Hamas,” the official said in a stark warning to the terrorist group behind the weekend assault that killed more than 1,200 Israelis

Meanwhile, Revital “Tally” Gotliv a Likud member of the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, called for the Jewish state to unleash nuclear warfare — even though Israel has never openly admitted to having the weaponry.

“Jericho Missile! Jericho Missile! Strategic alert. Before considering the introduction of forces. Doomsday weapon! This is my opinion. May God protect all our forces,” Gotliv tweeted Monday, according to a translation.

“I urge you to do everything and use doomsday weapons fearlessly against our enemies,” she said in another post, adding that Israel “must use everything in its arsenal.”

Nikolai Sokov, senior fellow at the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation, told Newsweek that “loose talk” about nukes has increased due to the war in Ukraine and now the conflict in Gaza — but noted that the subject is a sensitive one in Israel.

“For Israel, such loose talk is perhaps even more damaging because the country does not even admit it has nuclear weapons, so an indirect confirmation is not good for its image,” Sokov told the outlet.
