Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Thursday vowed to strike at those who attack Israel, speaking hours after a Grad rocket fired from the Sinai Peninsula exploded in Eilat.
Speaking at a ceremony marking 40 years since the operation to free hostages on hijacked Sabena Flight 571, during which he was shot and wounded, Netanyahu said Israel must constantly fight against those who perpetrate and plan terrorism." Israel must always fight terrorism, he continued, "It will not stop if we do not fight it."
Sinai, he continued, has become a terrorism zone, something he said Israel is "dealing with." The security fence being built along the southern border will not stop missiles, but a solution for that too will be found, he said.
