Israel is readying plans for a “forceful military strike against Hamas,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday.
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,” he said. “I cannot elaborate on the preparations, but we are properly positioned for such a scenario.”
Previously, GL reported, Hamas is reportedly offering Israel an ultimatum: Allow in Qatari cash or face around round of rockets.
Asked about Iran, Netanyahu reiterated his position that the Islamic republic had “no immunity.” He warned that if needed, “we will act against them wherever necessary; I am not ruling out any place.”
