Netanyahu to Ambassadors: Stand Up to Hamas

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu strongly defended Israel’s counter-terror operation in Gaza during a visit Tuesday to Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon.

During his visit, Netanyahu spoke to dozens of foreign ambassadors, and told them that he expects them to not only support Israel in its fight against terrorism, but also to stand up to Hamas. “Any democracy would have done what Israel is doing to defend itself,” he declared.
