Netanyahu Hints At ‘Extensive Campaign’ In Gaza


Prime Minister Netanyahu, who also serves as Israel’s Defense Minister, has ordered the IDF to prepare for an “extensive” military campaign in the Gaza Strip, following a wave of rocket attacks from the Hamas-ruled coastal enclave this week.

During a visit to the Gaza front Thursday, the Prime Minister inspected IDF staging areas near the Gaza border, and received security briefings from GOC Ground Forces Maj.-Gen. Kobi Barak, and divisional and brigade commanders, the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement.

“I recently ordered that the units be reinforced, that tools be added, in preparation for an extensive campaign,” Netanyahu commented at a speech given later in the day. “All citizens of Israel know that if an extensive campaign is necessary – we will go into it strong and secure, after all other possibilities have been exhausted.”
