Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Monday during his speech at the United Nations in New York that the IDF is the most moral army in the world.

Netanyahu said that Israel "faced a propaganda war because in an attempt to gain sympathy, Hamas used human shields, homes and hospitals to fire rockets at Israel while Israel surgically struck military targets."

Netanyahu said that Israel took steps to minimize civilian casualties and that "Palestinians were tragically and unintentionally killed. Israel was not targeting citizens."
