Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated on Saturday that the Islamic movement Hamas “will pay an unprecedented price” after it launched a wide-ranging operation involving rocket attacks and infiltrations into Israel.
Netanyahu said in a statement, “Hamas conducted a criminal and surprise attack this morning against the state of Israel and its citizens.”
He added, “I have ordered a wide-scale mobilization of reserve forces, and we respond to the fire with a level of force the enemy has not yet known. The enemy will pay an unprecedented price.”
He declared that his country is in a state of war.
