Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded Tuesday evening to the terrorist shooting attack in Eli in which four people were murdered.

"Today, next to the community of Eli, a shocking and abhorrent terrorist attack was perpetrated. From the depths of my heart, I send condolences to the families of those who were murdered, may G-d avenge them, and on behalf of the entire people, I send my best wishes for a swift recovery to the wounded," Netanyahu said.

"Our forces are now working on the ground in order to settle accounts with the murderers. In recent months, we have already proven that we do settle accounts with all of the murderers, without exception. Those who have attacked us are either in the grave or in prison, and so it will be here.

"I would like to remind all those who seek to harm us: All options are open. We will continue to fight terrorism with full force and we will defeat it," the prime minister concluded.
