The high-level security cabinet has made a series of decisions based on recommendations made by the military and defense officials, the Prime Minister’s Office says in a statement.

The decisions are “all based on recommendations from the IDF and the security services, in response to rocket attacks from Lebanon and the Gaza Strip on Israeli citizens.”

In the statement, Netanyahu says that “Israel’s response, tonight and subsequently, will exact a significant price from our enemies.”

Earlier tonight, the IDF struck four Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip over “Hamas’ security violations” in recent days, the military said.
