Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Thursday that Israel is prepared to act if the cease-fire with Hamas is broken.

"The operation's goals were met," Netanyahu said. "I know there are citizens that expect a harsher stand in Gaza - and we are prepared to make one. We choose when to act, against who to act and how to act," Netanyahu added.

"Right now we're giving the cease-fire a chance," the prime minister said.

Netanyahu also praised the Israeli homefront's strength and commended the police, the Homefront Command, the fire department and Magen David Adom for their "excellent work" during the operation.

"The system worked well, it implemented many conclusions drawn from past military operations, which was the complete opposite to what our enemies expected," Netanyahu said.

"Not only did the Israeli homefront not collapse, it stood strong," he added.
