“We will respond with force every time there is an attempt to disturb the quiet that was attained in the south after Operation Protective Edge,” Netanyahu said in a statement.Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz said Israel would not accept a deterioration in the security situation on the Gaza border.
“Hamas needs to understand that if it continues to undermine the security situation on the Gaza border, it risks a harsh Israeli response, which could turn into a comprehensive military campaign to demolish its government and military infrastructure,” he said.
Meanwhile, the UN’s deputy Mideast envoy, James Rawley, issued a statement urging all parties to maintain and reinforce the August 26 cease fire that put an end to Operation Protective Edge.
The statement said that Rawley “is deeply concerned by reports of exchange of fire between Palestinian militants and the IDF in the southern Gaza Strip today, which resulted in casualties on both sides. This follows a series of armed incidents since the end of November.”

Regardless of what the Palestinians,
the Arab League, or the
corrupt United Nations dictates,
THE WORLD KNOWS THE TRUTH:
Jerusalem is, and has always been,
the Eternal Capital of the Jewish People
AND the Jewish State of Israel!
