Economy Minister Naftali Bennett (Bayit Yehudi) said Wednesday that the Israeli people are strong and are prepared to bear the ongoing situation, but that they expect the government and security forces to "do the [necessary] work."

"We are doing the work," he told Channel 2.

Bennett added, "I want to bless the security forces and the operators of Iron Dome."

However, he added that, "Wars are not won by defensive measures."
