Netanyahu defends Israeli response to Gaza border clashes

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defends the IDF’s use of live fire against Palestinians clashing violently with Israeli troops on the Gaza border.

“Every country has the right to protect its borders. The Hamas terrorist organization declares its intentions to destroy Israel and sends thousands to break through the border fence for that purpose,” says Netanyahu. “We will continue to act with determination to defend our sovereignty and our citizens.”
