Leaders of the Hamas terror group in Gaza have gone underground out of fear for there lives, journalist Suleiman Ash-Shafi told Channel 10 Television on Monday. By doing so, the Hamas leaders indicated that they are taking seriously the threats of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and others regarding an Israeli response to the approximately 100 missiles launched by Gaza terrorists at Israeli targets since Saturday.
Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon told Arutz Sheva, Sunday, that all options are on the table, including targeted killings. Reacting to reports about attempts to negotiate a cease-fire, Chairman Naftali Bennett of Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) called on Netanyahu to act decisively toward Hamas on the basis of the government's own guidelines which talk about the collapse of the terror group and not negotiations with it. In Bennett's words, "One doesn't talk with terror. One eliminates it."
