PM: We Can't Protect Every House

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu toured the site of the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system near Ashkelon on Sunday. He called Iron Dome an impressive technical achievement, noting its accomplishments in the past few days.

Netanyahu made it clear, "We cannot protect every house, every facility, every site in the state of Israel." He continued, "We will continue to do a lot more but there will be a need for a combination of defensive and offensive abilities." The prime minister concluded, "If the firing [on Israel] continues, the reaction will be much more severe."
