Israel will escalate its response to ongoing rocket attacks against citizens of the South, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday at the start of a cabinet meeting.
"The IDF is striking and will continue to strike Gaza," Netanyahu said. "Terrorist organizations are suffering grave setbacks at the hands of the IDF. The world must understand that Israel will not sit idly."
Netanyahu added that Israel was closely following the events along the Syrian border, and was prepared for all possibilities on that front.
