Bennett blames Islamic Jihad, says it will decide way forward

In his remarks, Naftali Bennett appears to take pains to avoid implicating Hamas in the fighting in Gaza, placing the blame directly on Islamic Jihad’s doorstep.

“We see Islamic Jihad wants to drag the residents of Gaza into much greater harm. This is their decision if they will drag Gaza [residents] into something like this. We hope they won’t, but they will be responsible for any decisions in the coming hours.”
