The terrorists who kill Israelis and those who target Parisians have the same goals, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday at a Likud faction meeting.

"We have been fighting terrorism for almost 100 years and are battling it successfully," Netanyahu said.

The prime minister pointed to the "powerful" policy of demolishing terrorists' homes, saying that the father of the terrorist who killed two Israelis on Friday may have turned in his son in order to avoid having the home demolished, in addition to other methods of combating terrorism like increasing forces, and entering terrorist strongholds and neighborhoods.

"The murderers who harm people around the world  have the same murderous intentions. Those who kill Israelis have the exact same murderous intentions as those who killed in Paris and the methods we use - blowing up terrorists' homes, determined action by our forces, including entering different places and increasing the amount of forces - allow us to prevent much of their actions," he said. "Unfortunately, we cannot prevent every case, but we do succeed in preventing greater tragedies and we will continue doing so."

Netanyahu said "there is no way to fight terrorism but to fight terrorism" and nothing can replace that fight.
