Netanyahu: Israel has ‘surprises’ ready if Gaza rocket fire continues

Prime Minister Netanyahu is warning Hamas and Islamic Jihad that Israel has some fresh “surprises” in store for the terror groups if rocket fire from the Gaza Strip continues.

“Hamas and Islamic Jihad need to understand, this can’t continue,” Netanyahu tells reports in the West Bank settlement of Ariel. “If they don’t stop the [rocket] fire completely, not in a day or today — but at all, we’ll be forced to activate the plan for the wide-scale campaign we prepared.”

He adds: “There are new, surprising things in it.”
