Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he has concluded his meeting with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
Noting that the sit-down came shortly after 3 Israelis were murdered in a Palestinian terror attack in Jerusalem that was claimed by Hamas, Netanyahu says he told Blinken: “This is the same Hamas. It’s the same Hamas that committed the terrible massacre on October 7, the same Hamas that is trying to murder us everywhere.
“I told him we have sworn, and I have sworn, to destroy Hamas. Nothing will stop us,” he says, reiterating that the war in Gaza will continue until Israel frees all its hostages, vanquishes Hamas and guarantees that no similar threat will ever be posed again from Gaza.
