TEL AVIV (AFP) -- Israel must be ready for a "lengthy" military campaign in the Gaza Strip, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday.

"We must be prepared for a lengthy campaign" in Gaza, he said in a speech televised shortly after at least four people were killed in southern Israel by a mortar fired by militants in Gaza.

"Israeli citizens cannot live with the threat from rockets and from death tunnels -- death from above and from below," he said.

"We will not end this operation without neutralizing the tunnels whose sole purpose is killing our citizens."

Netanyahu also said that the international community must demand the "demilitarization of Gaza."

So Israel wants to neutralizing the tunnels and leave the Iron-Dome intercept Hamas rockets. But the Iron-Dome cannot intercept all the rockets. So Israel leaves their citizens at the mercy of the rockets and are in Gaza playing boy scouts, and all we have are mostly civilian killed to include hundred of childrens. No wonder Hamas is still has fire power. Israel probably blew up many houses, killed many civilians, in schools and hospitals because they can even get to Hamas.

How about the "demilitarization of Israel," Mr. Netanyahu? After all, it is you who are doing most of the killing.

Israel just told Gazans everything they need to know about the current military campaign; baring any change, it is going to get a lot worse in Gaza. Hamas needs to quit the ego trip now and pursue a ceasefire Israel can accept.

"Long"? Hmm,how long will it take Israel to EXTERMINATE 1.8 MILLION people in Gaza for NOT being Jewish or for resisting being SUBJUGATED UNDER 67yrs Zionist occupation/persecution & SIEGE on Gaza for 7yrs?
How "long" are you,Obama,going to GIVE ISRAEL to commit GENOCIDE(as it wishes)on Muslim & Christian Palestinians?Considering this is about "tunnels" there must be 1.8 MILLION PEOPLE(850,000 children)LIVING/ WORKING/SMUGGLING RIGHT NOW,IN TERRORIST "TUNNELS",RIGHT? OBAMA?

Cont:this isn't about TUNNELS or "Israels security". It's all about Zionist"Jews-only"EXPANSION,LAND/RESOURCE theft &persecution,terrorizing&torture of NON-Jews who oppose Zionism's Absolutist Koenig/Sofer/Schaeffer,Plan Dalet "Final Solution" against non-Jews! STOP THE SUPPORT FOR THE ZIONIST REGIME OF ISRAEL,it's the same as Nazi,AQ,ISIS,ISIL criminal,psychopathic,scumbags. DROP THE ISRAELI PARASITE,OBAMA. It's KILLING USA too,by your "special","shared interests" i.e. DEATH&DESTRUCTION!!

The international community should demand a demilitarization of Israel. It is Israel who is killing 99% of everyone.

53 young Israeli soldiers are dead... interesting to note Netanyahu's son did not have to undertake combat duty during his stint in the IDF! Ref; Internet social media. Guess it helps if your warmongering father is the PM of the terrorist state of Israel.
