Netanyahu: Israel Fighting On Seven Fronts

(JNS) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that Israel is fighting battles in seven sectors across the Middle East.

Speaking at a meeting with the Gevura (“Heroism”) Forum, whose members have lost loved ones during the ongoing war against Hamas, Netanyahu said, “Just to understand, we are—first of all—against Hamas [in Gaza], against Hezbollah [in Lebanon], against the Houthis [in Yemen], against the [Iranian-backed] militias in Iraq and Syria, against Iran [directly], [against Palestinian terrorists] in Judea and Samaria,” he said.

He noted that the Jewish state was also fighting a diplomatic battle against the International Criminal Court, whose chief prosecutor is seeking arrest warrants for Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant.

The Forum has urged Netanyahu to resist international pressure in pursuit of the goals of the war: eliminating Hamas, bringing the hostages home and ensuring Palestinian terrorists never again pose a threat from Gaza.

“We are committed to total victory,” said Netanyahu on Sunday, June 9. “We do not want to—and cannot—abandon [the fight in the Strip], not just because of the wonderful boys who have fallen, but because this is the future of the country; we have no choice,” he added.

“Our future will not exist here against the axis of evil of Iran and its proxies if we simply fold our hands,” he said. He emphasized that he was not prepared to accept Hamas’s demand that Israel halt the war without having achieved its war goals.

He reiterated that among those war goals was the safe return of all the hostages.
