( “The public’s resilience, and yours, gives us considerable strength to use considerable strength,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told teenage representatives of Sderot youth groups on Monday in a meeting offering support to the southern city’s residents, who are under near-constant threat from rockets.

“We are in the midst of a diplomatic campaign and in a diplomatic campaign... one needs much strength, patience, persistence and wisdom as well,” Netanyahu said, according to Israel Hayom.

The youth group leaders told Netanyahu about the social and educational initiatives they had undertaken to bring the community together and to support Sderot residents. They also spoke of the efforts they organized to deliver packages to soldiers in Gaza and to visit injured hospitalized soldiers, women and families with husbands and fathers on reserve duty, and bereaved families.
