Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that meticulous intelligence and precise IDF operational abilities made possible Israel's killing of three top Hamas leaders on Thursday

Netanyahu said that in his name, and in the name of the entire country, he wanted to thank the country's intelligence services, and especially the head of the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), Yoram Cohen.



“The Shin Bet and IDF work shoulder-to-shoulder during Operation Protective Edge, as it does throughout the year, and this is an important element in Israel's security,” he said.

Netanyahu said that the Gaza operation will continue until its goals are achieved: “restoring quiet for a prolonged period along with a significant blow to the terrorist infrastructure.”
