November 27, 2014 12:55

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday praised the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and IDF after it was announced that security forces had thwarted a large-scale Hamas cell that "could have claimed the lives of my victims in our country."

The premier noted that despite the announcement of the deterred plot in September, many others remain unrevealed. The premier lauded those involved in counter-terrorism work and operations "against Hamas that seeks to challenge the existence of a Jewish national state and essentially challenges the existence of Jews in general."

He vowed that Israel was working "day in day out to ensure the safety of Israeli citizens."
