Israel’s U.N. ambassador is warning Gaza’s Hamas rulers that if attacks against Israel continue, the terrorist group will face the “might” of the Israeli military and “be buried in the tunnels of Gaza.”
Danny Danon told the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday that Hamas committed a “heinous crime against Israel, a deliberate and direct act of terror against our people” when it fired a rocket Monday that hit a home in central Israel, wounding seven people.
The IDF responded with retaliatory airstrikes across Gaza and Palestinian terrorists fired a barrage of rockets at Israel’s south before an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire appeared to take hold early Tuesday.
Despite the supposed ceasefire, a rocket from Gaza exploded in an open field in the South Tuesday evening.
Danon said the Security Council “must condemn Hamas and its terrorism against Israel unequivocally” and designate Hamas a terrorist organization.
To those calling for restraint and talks between Israel and the Palestinians, Danon said, “once rockets are flying into our cities, we will defend our people … and then we will talk.”
