ISRAELI Defense Chief, Herzi Halevi has said the days ahead will be long and difficult considering the onslaught on Israelis by the Hamas Terrorists on Saturday killing scores of civilians including children and woman.
In a Tweet available to SOJ WORLDWIDE he said,
“This weekend, Hamas started a war against Israel with the worst massacre of innocent civilians in Israel’s history.
Hamas was more barbaric and more brutal than ISIS.
Let me be crystal clear: Israel will respond with determination and force to their unprovoked war crimes.
Hamas murdered hundreds of Israel, and his men, women, and children, and took dozens hostage into Gaza.
This horrific terror act demands a forceful, determined, and sustained response.
Which is exactly what we are doing and continue to do. Our Air Force is attacking hundreds of Hamas and Islamic Jihad targets in Gaza.
We follow international law, while exercising our right and responsibility to protect our civilians.
The days ahead will be long and difficult. We have paid a heavy price; but we will restore security to the people of Israel.
Let me repeat: we will restore security to the people of Israel.
Israeli intelligence indicates that Hamas are hiding among Gazan civilians, inside Gazan homes and schools, hospitals and mosques. Hamas behaves like ISIS.
I repeat – Hamas behaves like IsIs. It’s the same strategy – to maximize civilians casualties in Gaza and Israel – and make you all forget the massacre of hundreds of Israelis that started this war in the first place. We will not forget. Hamas terrorists target Israeli civilians, Israel will target Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists wherever they will be in Gaza.
