Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu praised the Shin Bet and IDF’s “meticulous intelligence and precise operational abilities” Thursday that made it possible to eliminate three top Hamas military commanders overnight Wednesday.
“The Shin Bet and IDF work shoulder-to-shoulder during Operation Protective Edge, as they do throughout the year, and this is an important element in Israel’s security,” the prime minister said.
The operation will continue until the goal of “restoring quiet for a prolongued period, along with a significant blow to the terrorist infrastructure,” is achieved, Netanyahu told reporters.
On behalf of the entire nation — and in his own name — Netanyahu he said he wanted to thank the director of the Israel Security Agency (ISA / Shin Bet), Yoram Cohen, and Israel’s intelligence services.
