Netanyahu vowed Tuesday to begin annexing West Bank settlements if he wins national elections next week. (AP Photo/Oded Balilty) JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday that continued rocket fire from Gaza is making another war against militants in the coastal strip inevitable, his latest headline-grabbing announcement just days before Israel heads to parliamentary elections. Netanyahu divulged that advanced plans were in place to strike Gaza and said he would decide the optimal timing of the offensive, given the Gaza Hamas rulers’ unwillingness or inability to stop the daily barrages. The Israeli leader has been criticized for failing to respond harshly to the rockets, which have been frequently sending residents of southern Israel scurrying for cover. Netanyahu himself was whisked away by bodyguards from a campaign event on Tuesday when Palestinian militants fired rockets toward the area where he was. Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005 and Hamas militants overtook the territory by force two years later. Israel and Hamas have fought three wars and engaged in several other rounds of violence over the past decade. “I do not wage war unless it is a last resort and I don’t risk the lives of our soldiers and citizens just to get applause,” Netanyahu said in an interview with Kan Reshet Bet Radio. “We will probably have no choice but to set out on a big campaign, a war against the terror forces in Gaza.” “I won’t start it one minute before we are ready, and we are preparing for a ‘different war’,” he added, shortly before flying to Russia for a lightning meeting with President Vladimir Putin. It was Netanyahu’s first major interview to a mainstream media outlet in a frenetic campaign in which he has been dictating the agenda with a dizzying array of maneuvers. Just this week, he has alleged fraud in Arab voting areas and has pushed for legislation to place cameras in polling stations on election day. He also claimed to have located a previously unknown Iranian nuclear weapons facility and vowed to annex the heart of the West Bank if he wins re-election. His pledge to extend Israeli sovereignty over the Jordan Valley sparked international condemnation. A spokesman for the U.N. secretary-general said that if it were carried through it would be a “serious violation of international law.” The U.N. statement comes after Saudi Arabia, a regional power that has grown closer to Israel in recent years, condemned the move, along with several others who warned it could inflame the Middle East and eliminate any remaining Palestinian hope of establishing a separate state. Netanyahu said it was important to act now as President Donald Trump prepares to unveil his Mideast peace plan after the elections next Tuesday in Israel. The move was widely viewed in Israel as Netanyahu’s latest stunt to draw in right-wing voters in a hard-fought campaign. AP NEWS Read more: The Associated Press

These isrealites (jews)not only r apart of 9/11along w mr silverstein(jew) and the us govt. Isreal r terrorist who kill anyone in the name of what they STOLE from the Palestinians. Palestinians have rocks the Jews over the wall shoot them with rockets. Just like Hitler Why tf it's war need years took small fucking region

GerardAraud Ahem, can you remind us how many UN resolutions Israel is sitting on? Who is the comedian. The Israeli state has used UN declarations against its criminal behavior as toilet paper over and over. So what's new? The UN is kinda like AP and Reuters ..... they think they r a lot more important than they actually are!

Warmonger. Autocrat. Trumpster. Scumbag. who is this UN? Defund UN now! Then what will be the reaction of United Nations? 'Another serious violation of international law'. Isreal will never have peace in that region. They can't continue taking land away from people who are there for generations if there is peace.

As coward as 45* petty and sadistic Clarification: Israel strikes Gaza after rocket was aimed and headed towards PM netanyahu along with over 500,000 civilians...

The UN has caused Israel enough trouble Israel they need to shutty. Reducer UN is no longer useful to Worl Peace, has turned into a Globslist tool for the Globalists Socialist Billionaires!! Should be disbanded or completely Revamped and the Profiteers removed. Until the UN does something about the Soviet Union's, I mean Russia's annexation of Crimea, they have no leg to stand on. BlowHards

I'd say the creation of Israel might be a violation as well they are violating for the last years. no one has said anything even Arab leadership is like a barking dog no value in the eyes of the world. Funny how the world speaks up about annexing a part of their rightful country, yet is quiet when barbarians murder Israeli kids

So I guess it’s okay that Putin just “annexed” Crimea. China does this daily and no one says anything So what? You think Bibi cares about that? So what’s UN going to do about it? Say over & over the same warnings it has done for decades? No, this will only make Israel more determined to annex. UN has a problem with having any credibility in this so-called modern progressive era. Its only ‘right’ if it’s against Israel!

As coward as 45* petty and sadistic Clarification: Israel strikes Gaza after rocket was aimed and headed towards PM netanyahu along with over 500,000 civilians...

But Israel has been violating international laws with impunity for a long time! Will it stop now unless UN takes action incl military on the ground destroying all illegal settlements & returning the land to Palestinians reversing occupation. Will the great Satan U.S let? Except Its not really annexing when they they already own it.

I know.. An unpopular opinion.. If Netanyahu would be a German The Palestinians would be jews. Everybody would name him..... If Russia can do it, why can't Israel? Besides Trump approves and the Trump Tower in Jordan Valley is ready to break ground... Israel needs to calm down. The US will veto. We’re Israel’s bitch.

As if he or the Israeli gov give two shits about 'international law'. Meanwhile Palestinian terrorists launching rockets at a sovereign country, targeting civilians is not a “serious violation of international law”? The UN is a joke Like the annexation of Crimea? What’s the next headline...Israel to Annex Iran...

Israeli Voters May Like Netanyahu’s Promises, but Don’t Necessarily Believe ThemRocket fire from Gaza that drove the prime minister off the stage at a campaign event reminded Israelis of his past broken campaign promises. Why do people fight over land that is no more than a pile of rocks? You mean kind of like he is taking notes from Trump? Promise the moon and deliver dirt? Benny Trump pledge

no shit Since when have Likud cared about international law?

The Latest: Rocket fire forces Israeli PM to cut short eventBREAKING: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was whisked away from a campaign rally after air raid sirens sounded. Netanyahu told the audience to remain calm as his guards led him away. 'Remain calm' as he hides from incoming rockets? Sure.... the timing.

Emboldened by Trump, Netanyahu pledges annexation move“Netanyahu wouldn’t have dared to say what he did during the Obama, Clinton and Bush administrations,” said one Middle East expert. do it appealing to hardliners in response to corruption scandals is something they must talk about on sleepovers Is Congress Woman Omar, who's said her husband wants a divorce because her need for another man. Is she also married to her brother, its so confusing.

H.R. McMaster out, John Bolton inPresident Donald Trump has sacked John Bolton, his third national security adviser since taking office. Mr Bolton is a ferocious war hawk and defender of the Monroe Doctrine. Our story from when he was first appointed in 2018: If this one can go down, any can except baby girl. John Bolton is evil! charliewwells Overjoyed to read this, as I have always felt JohnBolton is a very dangerous man. Huge question though: could his replacement be even worse?
