Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the riots on the Gaza border over the last few weeks on Saturday, saying the marchers “want to crush the Jewish state. We won’t let them.”
According to Israel’s Channel Two, Netanyahu made his statements during a celebration of Mimouna, a Moroccan-Jewish holiday that marks the end of the Passover week.
The last two Fridays have been marked by massive demonstrations and riots on the Israel-Gaza border. Under Hamas sponsorship, tens of thousands of Palestinians massed by the border fence. Along with low-level violence like throwing stones and burning tires, there were attempts to breach the fence and commit acts of terrorism.
