Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu encouraged soldiers from the IDF Golani Brigade 51st Battalion at an assembly point near Gaza, ahead of the expected battle with Hamas.

“The entire people of Israel are behind you,” the prime minister told the soldiers. He added that the IDF will deliver a harsh blow to the enemy to achieve victory.
