Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday said that the IDF will continue to strike terrorists in the Gaza Strip with great power and aggression. His comments came on the fourth day of an escalation that saw some 200 rockets fired from Gaza and 23 Palestinians killed in IDF strikes.
Speaking to a Likud faction meeting, the prime minister said of anyone planning to harm Israeli citizens, “We’ll hit them.”
The combination of striking terrorists, defense technologies and Israelis’ resilience, Netanyahu said, allows the IDF to expand its operations as needed.
Earlier Monday, Defense Minsiter Ehud Barak sent a similar message, warning that if the rocket fire escalates, Israel will continue air strikes against terrorist targets.
