PM Netanyahu: Israeli troops will go into Gaza only if all other options fail

PM and Defense Minister Binyamin Netanyahu stated on Thursday that Israel will conduct a military offensive in the Gaza Strip only if all other options fail. He spoke while cutting the ribbon on the norther segment of the National Highway 6. He came from attending a meeting on the Gaza border with local commanders. “We are tightening the security cordon around the Gaza Strip,” he said. “I have just ordered the forces reinforced and more equipment put in place to be ready for a broad offensive. All Israelis should know that if a major offensive should be necessary, we will go into it strong and with confidence after exhausting all other possibilities.” Regarding to the norther front, Netanyahu noted: “Over the Golan border, there is Syria and also Iran. Our actions to defeat Iran’s attempts to establish a permanent presence in Syria and smuggle in advanced weapons goes on and will continue.

    Just cut all power to Gaza. No electricity, no TV, no internet for 2 days for every rocket or mortar launched at Israel.

    what is the long term solution? this cannot continue. Hamas needs to be removed, but before any of this happens, there needs to be a sit down with israel, egypt and the US. Israel cannot administer gaza – that is continued occupation. Fatah cannot administer gaza – they failed. Egypt must adminster gaza so that gaza palestinians can have their fellow arabs in charge. if necessary, there can be cash payments from israel, free natural gas or adjustments to camp david for egypt benefit but this is the ONLY solution.

      Thanks for an intelligent response, danno (rare on this site.) Nevertheless, Egypt (and all other arabs) despise
      the Hamas two-legged rats, and they do not want any responsibility for that corrupt rodents’ nest.

    Watch out for armed hamas rats coming out of tunnels on the Israeli side of the border (& other border areas) this weekend.

    The options have long since run out. It’s just the SOS

    The real solution is to get rid off all the arabs, send them back to Egypt, Jordan, Syria. They have no right to be in any Israeli place.

    Time is not Yet !.

    Isaia chapter 11 –

    14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall despoil them of the east together. They shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab, and the children of Ammon shall obey them.

    Arb,Sweden.
