Netanyahu Puts the World on Notice: We Can Escalate

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu pre-empted the usual calls for restraint in the wake of an escalation of Hamas attacks Monday morning and told Sunday’s weekly Cabinet meeting that Israel "is prepared to escalate." "The world must realize that Israel won't sit by idly in the face of attempts to attack us. We are prepared to escalate our actions," he said.
