Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s foreign media spokesman Mark Regev is asked during an MSNBC interview about the alleged Israeli assassination of Hamas deputy leader Saleh al-Arouri in Lebanon.

While stammering significantly in his answer, Regev stresses that the strike only targeted Hamas officials, in an apparent attempt to coax Hezbollah into limiting its response.

“Obviously in Lebanon, there are many Hezbollah targets, but whoever did this strike was very surgical and went for a Hamas target because Israel is at war… Whoever did this has a gripe with Hamas,” Regev says.

“Whoever did this, it’s not an attack on the Lebanese state. It’s not an attack on the Hezbollah terrorist organization. Whoever did this, it’s an attack on Hamas, that’s very clear,” he adds.
