Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday warned that Israel would strike Gaza with “very powerful blows” if the Great March of Return protests were not brought to an end.

Speaking at the weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said:

“Hamas apparently has not understood the message: if it does not stop its attacks, they will stop in another way, in the form of painful blows, very painful.”

He added:

“We are very close to another type of action that includes very hard shots. If Hamas is clever, it will cease fire and violence now.”

Prior to Netanyahu’s remarks, Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned that the time had come to deliver “the hardest blow” to Hamas should the “violence” on the “border” not stop, he said in reference to the protests being held by unarmed activists.

According to Ynet News, Lieberman said:

“We have turned every stone, and we have passed the point of no return … We have reached the stage where we must deliver the hardest blow imaginable on Hamas.”
