Netanyahu: "We Will Respond to Every Attack Against Us"

(Prime Minister's Office) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the Cabinet on Wednesday: "We are continuing to strike Islamic Jihad after having targeted its senior commander in Gaza. He was responsible for most of the terrorist attacks originating in Gaza in the past year and he had been planning to carry out additional attacks in the days to come." "In the last 24 hours, we have destroyed important Islamic Jihad targets. We targeted terrorist cells that planned to launch rockets at the territory of the State of Israel, several of which were caught in the act." "We are not bent on escalation, but we will respond to every attack against us, and respond very sharply. Islamic Jihad would do well to understand...that we will continue to strike them without mercy...that Israel is very strong and that our will is very great. We are determined to fight to defend our country."
