netanyahuIn a conversation with Secretary of State John Kerry today, after Hamas breached a 72-hour ceasefire to attack the IDF in Gaza, killing two soldiers and kidnapping another, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made it clear that Israel would not back down.

“Despite a joint statement with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, according to which assurances had been received from Hamas and the other terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip regarding a ceasefire from 08:00 this morning, the Palestinians had unilaterally and grossly violated the humanitarian ceasefire and attacked our soldiers after 09:00,” Netanyahu told Kerry, according to a statement.

“Prime Minister Netanyahu told US Secretary of State Kerry that Hamas and the other terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip will bear the consequences of their actions and that Israel would take all necessary steps against those who call for our destruction and perpetrate terrorism against our citizens.”
