Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant blame Iran for the surge in terror attacks.
Giving a live statement from the scene of an attack earlier in the day in which a woman was shot dead and a man seriously wounded, Netanyahu says, “We are in the midst of a terrorist onslaught that is being encouraged, directed, and financed by Iran and its proxies.”
“We are working around the clock to catch the murderers,” Netanyahu says.
“The most significant change on the ground is related to Iranian financing and intent,” Gallant adds.
“Iran is looking for any way to harm the citizens of Israel. We will take several actions that will restore security to the citizens of Israel,” Gallant says, adding that “all options are on the table.”
