Hamas understands that over the last two days Israel has changed the rules of engagement in Gaza, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday after a briefing on the security situation at the Southern Command Headquarters.


"In the past two days we have renewed the policy of eliminating senior terrorists, we killed dozens of terrorists from Hamas and Islamic Jihad, and destroyed terror towers, ” he said.
“We have changed the rules of the game, and Hamas understands this very well. With that, it is clear that this is not the end of the campaign, and I therefore gave instructions to prepare for what will come next, and gave directives to leave armored and artillery forces around the Gaza Strip,” he said. 

Netanyahu met for a security assessment with National Security Council head Meir Ben-Shabbat, Deputy Chief of Staff Maj.-Gen Eyal Zamir, OC Southern Command Major General Herzi Halevi, Gaza Division commander Brigadier General Eliezer Toledano, and The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, Major General Kamil Abu-Rukun.
Before the briefing, Netanyahu visited wounded IDF soldier at Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba.
