Israel is prepared for a strong response to Gaza terrorism, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned Wednesday. “We did not choose this escalation or invite it, but if it continues we are prepared for a much broader and more penetrating response,” he declared.
“In any case, we will continue with preventative measures,” he said. “Whoever hurts Israel’s citizens should know his blood is on his own hands.”
Netanyahu spoke while visiting an Iron Dome installation near Ashkelon. The Iron Dome system successfully shot down several rockets Wednesday.
