Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tells members of his Likud party that Israel’s efforts to free further hostages from Gaza are being made through its military campaign in the Strip.

“We are continuing now to speak with our enemy about continuing to free hostages — speaking with fire,” he says.

The prime minister says that the war cabinet is acting “quickly but not recklessly” in its decisions about fighting, and says that the focus remains on both the southern and northern fronts.

Netanyahu also tells Likud ministers and lawmakers “be careful with your words, in particular during a time of war,” and avoid getting into personal arguments, including criticizing security forces.
