Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu commended on Tuesday the IDF and the Shin Bet on successfully completing the mission of neutralizing the Gaza attack tunnels during Operation Protective Edge. 

"This was a complex operation that made heroes of soldiers under difficult combat conditions," the prime minister said in a written statement.

"As I said at the beginning of the offensive, there is no 100 percent guarantee for success but we did all we could to achieve our goal," he added.
