Netanyahu: Israelis understand what Belgian people enduring

Israelis know what Belgian people are going through because they have been enduring similar attacks for years, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says in a press conference.

He says there is an international battle against terrorism, between “the children of light and the children of darkness.”

“Terrorism doesn’t stem from neglect, it doesn’t stem from frustration,” Netanyahu says, but from ideology.

The prime minister goes on to say that terrorists, notably Palestinians, should be deprived of hope.

“We will vanquish terror, but if the nations of the world stand hand in hand, we will vanquish it much faster,” he says.
