Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits the Hatzerim airbase near Beersheba and says Hamas has “received blows it didn’t expect” and Israel has set back the terror group by “years.”

Rocket alarms sounded in the base during Netanyahu’s visit.

“Our enemies see what price we exact for aggression against us, I’m sure they’ll draw the conclusion,” Netanyahu says, adding that the operation will go on “as long as needed to restore calm for the citizens of Israel.”
