Netanyahu: Israel ‘May Very Well Need… Harsher Military Action’

This evening, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a statement via his Facebook page explaining that while Israel may need to take “harsher military action,” he wants to exhaust all ceasefire possibilities before doing so.

I realize that there are citizens who expect a harsher military action and we may very well need to do that. But at present, the right thing for the State of Israel is to exhaust this possibility of reaching a long-term cease-fire. As Prime Minister, I have the responsibility, and it is the highest responsibility, to make the right steps to ensure our security. That is what I have done and it is what I will continue to do.
