The IDF conducted a precision attack that killed the head Islamic Jihad leader in his bedroom and over 20 other Islamic Jihad leaders in their secret hiding places around Gaza. They thought they were safe, but Israel has the ability to know how to find them and stop them, no matter where they hide. While PM Netanyahu did not use the words “we will get you in your bed”, that is exactly the message he was giving across, nowhere is safe for them to hide, not even in their beds.
PM Netanyahu Press Conference
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held security discussions today, at IDF Southern Command headquarters, with Defense Minister Naftali Bennett, IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi, ISA Director Nadav Argaman, NSC Director Meir Ben-Shabbat and senior defense establishment officials.
Prime Minister Netanyahu at the start of the discussion:
“There is a genuine change here in the equation because the terrorist leaders and the last of their militants now know that we can reach them in their hiding places with surgical precision and take action against them.
This denies them the feeling that they can act against us, against our civilians, while hiding behind their civilians. This changes the equation because they can all be in the crosshairs. This is a very major change and it greatly strengthens Israel’s deterrence and its capabilities against the terrorists.
We are in the midst of a campaign. We hope that it will be as short as possible. We are not bent on escalation but we will do whatever is necessary to restore the quiet and security to the residents of Israel, including the residents of the south. I think that we are on the right track.
I would like to commend you, the Chief-of-Staff, GOC Southern Command, the ISA and IDF Intelligence. The commanders and soldiers are doing fantastic work.”
