Gaza, 15 Ramadan 1435/13 July 2014 (MINA) – Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed in a public speech he delivered to continue the Israeli war on Gaza and justified killing Palestinian citizens.

“Israel occupation is not likely to accept a ceasefire before eradicating Hamas and other Palestinian fighters from Gaza and said that the Israeli army is ready for a ground operation,” he said on Friday (11/7). Middle East Monitor (MEMO) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.

On the fourth day of the war, which Israel calls Operation Protective Edge, Netanyahu said that the Israeli army attacked “over 1,000 terrorist targets.” He also said: “We will continue until we are sure that Israel’s residents have quiet.”

On Saturday morning (12/7)  an Israeli fighter jet targeted Mabarat Felasteen, a charity for disabled children in the north of the Gaza Strip. Two children were killed and three others wounded.

Meanwhile Palestinians have continued retaliatory launches of their homemade rockets on Israeli settlements and cities. While delivering his speech, Netanyahu heard a rocket alarm and escaped.

Earlier in Netanyahu’s speech, Israeli Chief of Staff General Bani Gantz said that his army is ready for a ground operation in Gaza, but he is waiting for a political decision.

Israeli newspaperreported the American ambassador to Tel-Aviv saying that his country “does not object to a ground operation in the Gaza Strip, but prefers cessation of escalation.”(T/Nidiya/P04)
