Netanyahu mocks Nasrallah, warns Israel will do ‘whatever is necessary’

In a new Hebrew-language video posted online, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu mocks Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah and vows to “do whatever is necessary” to defend Israel.

“We acted yesterday with determination and responsibility. We ensured the security of our citizens, as well as the safety of our soldiers,” Netanyahu says of the exchange of fire across the northern border initiated by Hezbollah’s missile attack against an IDF post near Avivim.

He mocks Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah for living permanently in a bomb-proof bunker. “The man in the bunker knows exactly why he’s in the bunker,” Netanyahu says in the video.

“We will continue to do whatever is necessary to defend Israel’s security, in the sea, on land and in the air, and we will continue to act against the threat of [Hezbollah’s] precision missiles.”
