While the attention of the media in America has switched from Israel to ISIS and now to Ferguson, Israel doesn’t have the luxury of turning its attention away from its terrorist neighbor who wants to annihilate all the Jews.
Netanyahu warned today that if more rockets begin firing after this 5-day ceasefire is over in just a few hours, Israel will hit back hard against Gaza. And it’s important to note that Defense Minister Ya’alon says Operation Protective Edge in Gaza is not over:
INN – Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned Monday that Israel will hit back hard if Palestinian rocket attacks from Gaza resume, speaking just hours before the midnight expiry of a five-day ceasefire.
“We are ready for all scenarios… the army is ready to respond with force if the firing (of rockets) resumes,” he said in a meeting with Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon in Ashdod, a statement said.
According to the Prime Minister, the turbulent Middle East needs a combination of strength and perseverance.
“The IDF has a lot of power and, the eternal people are not afraid of a long road,” he said. “It can take some time and patience, determination and perseverance,” he said. “The combination of endurance and strength will help us to achieve the target of this operation – the achievement of peace and security for all citizens of Israel.”
Defense Minister Ya’alon added that the self-defense operation in Gaza has not ended.
