Bennett: We’ll no longer put up with trickling attacks from Gaza

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, in his first statement on the Gaza conflict, said on Sunday: “Our patience has run out. We shall no longer tolerate drip-dropping attacks from the Gaza Strip. The Israelis who suffer them are not second-class citizens.” Speaking at a state memorial service for the fallen of the 2014 Gaza War, Bennett advised the rulers of Gaza “to get used to a different kind of operational initiative. Our enemies had better learn the new rules.”

The prime minister added: “Hamas has been holding [the remains of] Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul for seven years. That’s too long and we’ll do whatever we can to bring them home.”
The ceremony was also attended by President Reuven Rivlin and his successor Yitzhak Herzog, opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz,
