Netanyahu threatens ‘forceful’ response to Gaza as violence surges


(Worthy News) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that Israel would “act forcefully” in response to a predawn rocket attack from the Gaza Strip that struck a Beersheba home, as a shaky calm appeared to return to the area.

The comments came after the prime minister met with top security officials for emergency consultations over the flareup, which sent already high border tensions skyrocketing. The Israel Defense Forces said it bombed at least 20 targets in Gaza in response to the missile attack.

“Israel sees these attacks as very serious — those on the security fence, against the Gaza periphery and against Beersheba — anywhere. I said at the start of the cabinet meeting this week that if the attacks don’t end, we’ll end them,” Netanyahu said, in the IDF Gaza Division’s headquarters near the Strip.
