Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon on Monday blasted the Palestinian Authority (PA) for its continued incitement against Israel, as well as for its forming a unity government with the Hamas terrorist group.
“We are surrounded by bloodthirsty countries and organizations, dripping with hatred, who realized that the power and capabilities of the IDF will not allow them to act against Israel in a battle of army against army, so they turned to terrorism and rockets, missiles and delegitimization, and attempts to develop nuclear weapons,” said Ya’alon, who spoke at a ceremony in memory of the fallen soldiers from the Nahal Brigade.
“If they could, they would exhaust Israeli citizens every day. If they had the ability, they would work on a daily basis against different targets, engage in terrorism and try to discourage us from living here. But they also know that we will fight back if need be, and cut off the hands of those who seek to hurt us,” declared Ya’alon, who said that there are tens of thousands of rockets directed towards northern and southern Israel and ready to be fired at any moment.
