Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Thursday that Israel is "deep in the era of missiles that are aimed at civilian population areas."

Speaking at the Emergency Economy Committee, the prime minister repeated statements from earlier this week, saying Israel "is the most threatened country in the world," adding there are "tens of thousands of missiles and rockets that could hit our population."

Netanyahu called to "prepare defensively and offensively for the new era of [missile and rocket] warfare."

"Defensive preparations mean preparing the nation to be steadfast to allow the military to strike the enemy that wants to destroy us," he said, adding that defense "requires both materials and many resources and this demands a change in our national order of priorities."

"It is important to maintain functional continuity in the home front that is under fire," he continued.
