Defense Minister Yoav Gallant praises the forces who carried out a drone strike on a car carrying a suspected terror cell in the northern West Bank.

“I praise the security forces who a short time ago carried out a targeted elimination of a terrorist squad that fired towards Israeli territory, and had previously carried out several shooting attacks,” Gallant says.

We will take an offensive and proactive approach to combat terrorism, we will use all the means at our disposal and we will exact the heaviest price from every terrorist or terrorist emissary,” he says.

Hebrew media reports that Gallant had to personally authorize the drone strike, the first carried out by Israel in the West Bank in nearly two decades, as it represents a marked escalation in Israel’s efforts to combat terror in the territory.
