Netanyahu further threatens Gaza terror groups amid continued attacks from Strip

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu further threatens Palestinian terror groups in the Gaza Strip amid continued arson attacks and rocket fire from the coastal enclave.

“We have been striking Hamas every day, for 11 nights in a row. If we need we’ll do much more. They need to understand that what happened to them last time will happen to them in multiples, [Hamas] and Islamic Jihad,” he tells the Knesset Lobby for the Negev, according to a statement from his office.

He also suggests Israel could employ targeted killings of senior Hamas and Islamic Jihad figures if violence further escalates.

“They saw we were prepared to use all the tools, including [targeted killings], if things develop,” he says, apparently referring to the Israeli strike in November that killed senior Islamic Jihad commander Baha Abu Al-Ata.
