Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:
“I am now coming from the IDF control center in Tel Aviv, from the IDF Operations Squadron. This is very impressive. Every day that passes, we are harming other capabilities of the terrorist organizations. We are thwarting more senior commanders, shooting down more terrorist towers, hitting more weapons caches.
As I told the ambassadors here today, this is Israel’s natural right. I very much appreciate the support of these governments, and I especially appreciate the support of US President Joe Biden for the right to self-defense of the State of Israel.
I am determined to continue this operation until its goal is achieved – to restore peace and security to you, the citizens of Israel. ”
Basically Netanyahu politely declined Biden’s demand for a ceasefire!
