Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke at the start of Sunday morning’s government meeting in the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council of the end of Operation Protective Edge.
“I would like to applaud our hosts and friends from the south. Your leadership has given us much strength in order to ensure the security of the citizens of Israel. We have always extended peaceful tidings to our neighbors who wanted it and we aggressively fought those who did not. We hit Hamas like never before. We did not agree to any of their conditions. I hope that the quiet will continue for a long time, but we are prepared for any given scenario,” the PM said.
