Israel-Hamas War: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in the latest warning to the Hamas militants, asserted Israel did not start the war, but will end the war in such a way it will be remembered by the enemies for decades. 

"Hamas will understand that by attacking us, they have made a mistake of historic proportions. We will exact a price that will be remembered by them and Israel’s other enemies for decades to come. Israel didn’t start this war, Israel will finish it," he said in a stern message to the militant organisation.

Netanyahu equates Hamas with ISIS

The critical warning from the Prime Minister came as the death toll on both sides reached 1600, with the Hamas authorities claiming nearly 700 civilians were killed on their side. Around 900 people, including 73 soldiers, have been killed in Israel, according to media reports.

Equating Hamas with the Islamic militant organisation (ISIS), he underscored that the savage attacks that the militant organisation perpetrated against innocent Israelis are mindboggling and added they were slaughtering families in their homes, massacring hundreds of young people at an outdoor festival, kidnapping scores of women, children and elderly, even Holocaust survivors. 

"Hamas terrorists bound, burned and executed children. They are savages. Hamas is ISIS. And just as the forces of civilization united to defeat ISIS, the forces of civilization must support Israel in defeating Hamas," the war-torn PM said. 

Netanyahu thanked world leaders for lending support

Further, Netanyahu greeted the Biden administration and the other world leaders for their "unequivocal support" at the time of the brutal war. Notably, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also extended his support to the war-torn nation and said, "Deeply shocked by the news of terrorist attacks in Israel. Our thoughts and prayers are with the innocent victims and their families. We stand in solidarity with Israel at this difficult hour."

Earlier today, US President Joe Biden said at least 11 US citizens have been confirmed dead in the surprise Hamas attacks. Biden also said the US government believes it is “likely” that Americans are among those currently being held hostage by Hamas militants, while other US citizens are still unaccounted for after the deadly assault.
