Netanyahu blasts State Comptroller’s report on the Gaza operation

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu issued a blistering attack on State Comptroller Joseph Shapiro’s report, due for publication Tuesday, accusing him of missing out on the really important lessons learned from the 2014 anti-terror Operation Defensive Edge. “We inflicted on Hamas the most painful blow it had ever suffered and eliminated a thousand terrorists including their senior commanders,” he said. “I stand squarely behind the IDF, Shin Bet and all our security chiefs for protecting the country and its people. Our troops risked their lives and we are proud of them.” Addressing Likud parliamentary party meeting, Netanyahu denied that the security cabinet had not been properly briefed in the course of the operation.
