Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated that Hamas has broken all cease-fires so far and is to blame for the mass casualties.
Speaking with Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, Netanyahu expressed his frustration with Hamas over the growing violence in the region and Hamas’ refusal to stick to any cease-fires.
“Hamas has broken five cease-fires that we accepted and we actually implemented. They rejected all of them, violated all of them, including two humanitarian cease-fires in the last 24 hours. Now they come with their own cease-fire proposal and they violated it,” Netanyahu told Wallace.
He defended Israel’s decision to protect itself from Hamas’ violence. “We’ll do whatever is necessary to achieve our goal,” he said.
Hamas is responsible for the mass casualties, Netanyahu said. He told Wallace, “Hamas is a terror organization, a ruthless terrorist organization, that not only wants to kill our people, it wants to sacrifice its own people…It should be blamed and not Israel.”http://freebeacon.com/national-security/netanyahu-hamas-has-broken-all-cease-fires-we-have-agreed-to/
