Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday addressed IDF strikes which hit Syrian army targets early Monday morning in response to a cross-border attack from Syria that killed a 13-year-old Israeli boy on Sunday.
"We demonstrated strength overnight versus the Syrian army and will continue to strike out aggressively against anyone who harms us or attempts to harm us," Netanyahu said at the Likud faction meeting.
The prime minister also praised security forces for apprehending the terrorists who killed police officer Baruch Mizrahi on Passover eve.
Netanyahu said that he has taken steps to demolish the home of Hamas terrorist who killed Mizrahi and would continue to take further steps to fight terror.
He stated that Israel's top mission remains bringing home the three Israeli teens kidnapped in the West Bank a week-and-a-half ago.
