PM: Ready for Continued Fire - We'll Act with Force


Ahead of Friday's American Independence Day observance, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu visited the home of United States Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro.

Commenting on the security situation, Netanyahu said, "Now we are preparing for two possibilities in the south: The first is that the firing at our communities will stop and then our operations will stop as well and the quiet that prevailed in the south after Operation Pillar of Defense will continue.  The second possibility is that the firing at our communities in the south will continue and then the reinforcement forces that are located in the field will act forcefully. The security of our citizens comes first."
