(Israel Hayom/JNS) Israel is readying plans for a “forceful military strike against Hamas,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said earlier this week.
Speaking with reporters while visiting Ukraine, he was asked whether his government could properly deal with the threat posed by the Hamas terrorist organization ruling the Gaza Strip, just days after another escalation.
“I am preparing a massive campaign; it will be different than anything we have seen before,” Netanyahu said. “I cannot elaborate on the preparations but we are properly positioned for such a scenario.”
Netanyahu refused to say whether Israel would try to topple the Hamas regime if the two sides fought another war.
Asked about Iran, Netanyahu warned that if needed, “we will act against them wherever necessary; I am not ruling out any place.”
