Israel’s prime minister says the military will continue to strike its enemies, including through covert missions, after a weekend flare-up of violence in the Gaza Strip.
Benjamin Netanyahu spoke his weekly cabinet meeting Sunday, a day after Israel struck a series sites linked to Gaza’s Hamas rulers in response to a late-night barrage of rocket fire. Although no one claimed responsibility for the rockets, Israel holds Hamas responsible for all attacks coming out of the territory.
Netanyahu said Israel is in a “very sensitive” security environment to its north, south and east.
“We will continue to act in all fronts for the security of Israel, both through open means and also through secret means, at sea, in the air and on the ground,” said Netanyahu.
