Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu congratulated the IDF soldiers and commanders who carried out Tuesday night's operation to arrest 64 members of Hamas, including 50 who were released in the Gilad Schalit deal struck in 2011.

Netanyahu called the arrest of these former prisoners "an important message" in what he said was a "chain of activity that will continue until we bring back the boys, and hurt Hamas in Judea and Samaria."
