ISRAELI Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened Gaza with war today, warning Hamas that his country had “prepared something [they] can’t even imagine.”
The Israel military confirmed early yesterday morning that it had struck Palestinian targets in Gaza and Isis targets in Syria, in response to rockets fired towards southern Israel on Sunday evening.
It came hours after Israel said that it had killed a Palestinian militant who had reportedly tried to place a bomb along the Israel-Gaza barrier fence.
Palestinians were furious on Sunday over an image of the man’s body dangling from the front of an Israeli bulldozer, which had crossed into Gaza to retrieve it.
In response to the rocket fire, which caused no injuries or damage, the Israeli military said that aircraft struck “dozens of Islamic Jihad terror targets throughout the Gaza Strip” and a facility belonging to Islamic Jihad outside of Damascus.
The Gaza health ministry reported that four Palestinians were treated at the al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City for wounds caused by the Israeli strikes.
Videos on social media yesterday appeared to show footage of another Israeli air raid on Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, while there were reports that rockets fired by Gaza militants had slipped through Israel’s Iron Dome defence system.
Speaking to Israel’s Army Radio yesterday, Mr Netanyahu said that he’d conveyed a message to Hamas that if it did not stop the Gaza militants behind the attacks, Israel would target Hamas directly.
“If you don’t shoot them, we will shoot you. I’m talking about a war,” he said. “I only go to war as a last option but we have prepared something you can’t even imagine.”
