IDF spokesman: Hamas ‘playing with fire,’ army ‘will bring quiet to the south’

IDF Spokesman Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis says the IDF is prepared to do whatever it must to return quiet to Israel’s south.

“Hamas must understand it is playing with fire, and we will escalate our actions until quiet returns to the south,” he tells reporters.

He adds: “The IDF has used the past four years to improve our capabilities, in the air and on the ground. What we’ve seen until now is only a small part of what we can do. The decision as to what to do and how much force to use is given to the political echelons, but we will bring quiet to residents of the south,” he insists.
