Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch addressed the recent escalation in the South on Saturday during a tour of the western Negev, and issued a warning to Hamas, saying that there "is no immunity for anyone in Gaza."
"They must know we will pursue them one by one until we find them. we will how how to reach them in their underground hideouts. The IDF has the tools and we will know how to use them," Aharonovitch said.
The minister met with senior police officials, toured police checkpoints in the western Negev, and heard security evaluations.
Later, he arrived in Beersheva and visited Daniel, the critically injured 16-year-old teenager who was wounded from an anti-tank missile fired by Hamas at a school bus on Thursday.
"Hamas's conduct is barbaric. Everyone knows that a yellow school bus is an internationally recognized symbol for a vehicle transporting children," Ahranovitch said. "Firing on it is a despicable crime and the crossing of a red line," he added.
