Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu opened the cabinet meeting on Wednesday with a reference to the ongoing Islamic Jihad rocket blitz: “I believe that the message relayed by the IDF to the Islamic Jihad is beginning to register. They realize that we will continue to strike them without mercy. Israel has great strength and a strong will,” he said. “They have just one option: to halt their attacks or sustain more blows. The choice is theirs,” the prime minister stressed.
