Jerusalem August 28: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Hamas will pay the full price if it attempts to carry out attacks against Israel.
“Whoever tries to harm us, whoever finances and organizes, whoever sends terrorists against Israel, will pay the full price,” Netanyahu said in a televised statement on Sunday.
The remarks came after the deputy political chief of Hamas, Salah al-Arouri, threatened a “multi-front war” if Israel attempted to assassinate more Palestinian leaders, Xinhua reported.
Last week, right-wing Israeli ministers and lawmakers were reported to have called on the government to return to the so-called “targeted killing” of Palestinian militants amid a wave of Palestinian attacks against Israelis.
These attacks come amid almost daily Israeli military raids in the West Bank, which often lead to the death of Palestinians.
The last “targeted killings” by Israel took place on 9 May, when a large-scale military offensive in the Gaza Strip killed three Islamic Jihad leaders in an airstrike.
