(February 25, 2020 / JNS) Israel is “preparing something” for the terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip, according to Israeli Defense Minister Naftali Bennett.
In remarks made during an interview with i24 News that aired on Monday, Bennett said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi are preparing a “meaningful move” that will only take place “on our terms and in our time.”
“I want to do it on our terms,” said Bennett. “You want to be effective with a very cruel enemy such as Hamas. You don’t want them to lead you into their game.”
Regarding the latest spike in hostilities between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Gaza, Bennett said “this round is not the fundamental solution; we need to fundamentally change the situation there.”
He added that “it will take a bit of time, but we’ll get it done.”
Egypt and the United Nations helped negotiate a ceasefire between Israel and Gaza following two days of fighting with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group that saw some 60 rockets fired at Israel, Reuters reported Tuesday.
