Prime Minister Yair Lapid dismisses criticism from the Likud party that IDF raids in recent days against the “Lion’s Den” terror group in Nablus were an election stunt designed to boost his prospects.
“I don’t need to prove anything to anyone,” Lapid says in an interview with Channel 12.
“This is part of the [ongoing] operation, it is an operation that has been conducted since the end of March against the terrorist organizations,” Lapid says.
“We will use all our tools to thwart terrorism — 370 terrorist attacks have been prevented since the end of March,” he says.
“We have said from day one there will be no connection at all between security and politics, the fact is that we always do the smart thing and quietly,” he says.
