Israel's Response to Gaza Terror will Intensify, Prime Minister Warns.

By Israel Hayom

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu issued a stern warning to Hamas amid escalating tensions along the border with the Gaza Strip, saying Israel will employ whatever means necessary to ensure its citizens' safety and security.

Speaking at a military officers' graduation ceremony in southern Israel, Netanyahu said, "I do not intend to go into detail about what we are planning in regard to Gaza. Our operations there will intensify as necessary. We are ready for any scenario and our enemies would do well to understand that -- now."

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said Palestinians had "a legitimate right" to counter Israel "bombing with bombing."
