Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, thanked the Israeli military for its "precise actions" during a news conference on July 10.
Joined by Israel’s minister of defence, the army's chief of staff and air force commander, he said: “They are making every effort to avoid hitting civilians and innocents are hit it is because Hamas is maliciously hiding behind Palestinian civilians.”
According to Israel's defence minister, Moshe Ya’alon: “Dozens of terrorists have been killed and we are continuing to strike at Hamas and make it pay a heavy price for everything it has done in recent days.”
