Netanyahu: Anyone who raises a hand against us faces a powerful response
During a ceremony on Thursday marking three years since Israel's operation in Gaza against Hamas, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that Israel will not accept any violation of its sovereignty, "not in the south, not in the north, not anywhere". He said that "anyone who raises a hand against us will face a resolute and powerful response. Our enemies know this." He also repeated his promise that Israel will not deviate from its effort to bring back the remains of two IDF soldiers who fell during Operation Protective Edge, Lieut. Hadar Goldin and Staff Sgt. Oron Shaul, which are still being held by Hamas.
The annual ceremony at Jerusalem's Mt. Herzl national cemetery is held in memory of the 68 IDF troops who lost their lives during the 2014 operation.
