With tensions again on the rise in the South, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu indicated at Sunday's weekly cabinet meeting that a major IDF operation in Gaza is not off the table, warning Hamas: “Do not test us.”
“We will do everything we need to bring about quiet,” Netanyahu said, as inflammable balloons were once again being launched from the Gaza Strip toward communities along the border.
"Over the last few days we have seen violence by rogue groups from the Gaza Strip, but it does not absolve Hamas [of responsibility]. We respond by attacking Hamas targets,” he said.
