PARIS, December 2. /TASS/. France expects Israel to specify the goals of its military operation in the Gaza Strip apart from "the destruction of Hamas," as the country’s current moves could protract the conflict for years to come, French President Emmanuel Macron said at a press conference after the 28th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (referred to as COP28) in Dubai.
"I believe that time will come when Israeli authorities will have to more precisely define their objectives and their final goal. What is the total destruction of Hamas? Does anyone think it is possible? If this is the case, the war will last ten years," Macron said.
