PM Netanyahu: “The Operation Will Be Expanded Until the Goal is Achieved”

JERUSALEM – Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu held a security meeting with Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz and GOC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Sammy Turgeman this afternoon (Jul. 21) at an IDF base in the south.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said: “The IDF is making progress in the field according to plan and the operation will be expanded until the goal is achieved – restoring quiet to the citizens of Israel for a long period. The achievements in the fighting in the field are outstanding. I am impressed by the operation to hit the tunnels; it is achieving results beyond what we expected. On behalf of the people of Israel, I tell all the soldiers in the field that we are proud of their strength of spirit and that we pray for their well-being. A military campaign is a complex thing and it has difficult moments. I am certain that together, united, we will reach the goal.”

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon stated earlier today that the operation will continue until there is quiet, adding that the IDF will draft more reservists if necessary.

Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz stated last week that that he believes the IDF should temporarily control Gaza, disarming Hamas while it does so.

Earlier today Hamas fired a massive barrage of rockets at several large cities in Israel. 14 rockets were fired at the Ashkelon area; nine of the rockets were intercepted and two fell in open spaces. Four rockets were fired at the Tel Aviv area; two were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-rocket system.

In total, Hamas has fired some 1,820 rockets at Israel since July 8th. That’s an average 140 rockets every day.

  1. AWESOME …. PROUD OF ISRAEL

  2. Mike Burke says:

    He’d better make the period decades and not just a few weeks or months.

  3. ahem.. what’s “a long period”????

  4. Kol hakavod Netanyahu! Its time to eliminate Hamas for good!

  5. May Davies says:

    How about we make that a permanent period? Isaiah 60:18 PURGE HAMAS

  6. That period should require the crippling of Hamas, the destruction of its missiles stocks and killing of it its officers and as many operatives as possible (since they automatically shape-change to civilians).

  7. David Cohen says:

    Hamas is not the only group in Gaza. The best thing would be if the next generation of Arabs wakes up and makes Peace with Israel and expense their energy on building their Country and not on destroying Israel.

  8. may God go before you, protect you, and give you peace

  9. JUST MAKE IT FAST….!!! I DONT LIKE TO SEE CASUALTY ON OUR SIDE..!!

  10. Skid Marks says:

    BIBI, PRESS THE ATTACK AND SPEED IT UP AND DESTROY THE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL. THAT IS YOUR JOB

  11. Skid Marks says:

    A LONG PERIOD IS TWO YEARS

  12. Keren Bar says:

    Amos1:7-8 “So I will send fire upon the wall of Gaza And it will consume her citadels. 8″I will also cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, And him who holds the scepter, from Ashkelon; I will even unleash My power upon Ekron, And the remnant of the Philistines will perish,” Says the Lord GOD . Go for it Bibi!

  13. I love that slap in the face to the donkeys who keep telling us to restrain and cease fire! Only country in the world that is tacitly not allowed to protect ourselves. Is that because we’re Jews? So every other religion gets to protect themselves. Look at all the bombs and rockets Muslims (religion of peace) have amassed throughout the world. give me a break.
