While Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu again avoids taking responsibility for the October 7 Hamas onslaught as several security chiefs have done, the premier says he will face a probe into what happened on that day but that the investigation must not take place until after the war.

“October 7 was a black day in our history. We will get to the bottom of what happened on the southern border and the Gaza-envelope area. The debacle will be checked to the full.”

“Everyone will have to give answers on the debacle — including myself — but all that will happen only after the war,” he says in an address to the nation. “As prime minister, I am responsible for securing the future of the state. And right now, my job is to lead the state of Israel and the people to a crushing victory over our enemies.

“Now is the time to join forces for one goal: to surge forward to victory… with deep faith in the justice of our cause,” he says.
