PM: We Will Do What is Necessary to Defend Israelis


Speaking at a Likud faction meeting Monday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that Israel would harm anyone that tried to harm its citizens. Discussing the rocket fire from Gaza in recent days, Netanyahu said that Israel would act without reservations to do anything it needed to in order to protect its citizens.

Netanyahu added that the Likud would not ignore the social agenda. “During this Knesset session we will continue to make progress on social and economic issues, and to fix social problems that have developed over decades. In the end we will be judged by what we do, and we have a lot to do,” Netanyahu said.
