Netanyahu puts Gaza terror groups on notice after IED attack

After an IED attack on an IDF patrol along the Gaza border over the weekend, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel will not accept violation of its sovereignty by terror groups in the Strip.

“Every act of aggression by terrorist elements is met with a firm and powerful response from our side,” Netanyahu says at a dedication ceremony of a new emergency room at Ashkelon’s Barzilai Hospital.

He says Israel won’t tolerate sporadic rocket fire from Gaza or the planting of IEDs along the border, such as the one Saturday that wounded four soldiers, including two seriously.

“Whoever harms us will be hurt himself. Those who don’t act to calm the situation but choose to fan the flames will bear responsibility,” he warns.
