Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met on Shabbos with Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot, and other senior defense officials to discuss the recent barrage of rockets fired at Israel from Gaza.
“The IDF is acting against terror activities in the border area which are led by the Hamas terror organization,” an IDF spokesman said. “These activities include fire on Jewish border towns and arson terror.”
“The IDF will increase as much as necessary the tempo of its attacks on Gaza. We will continue to act to improve the security situation and to strengthen southern residents’ feeling of security.”
“At this stage, it is too early to discuss a large operation, even though we are ready and prepared for a wide range of scenarios and have the ability to protect and attack. Within the last 24 hours, we attacked Gaza harder than we have in any attack since Operation Protective Edge – both in quantity, in type of targets, and in timing.”
