Netanyahu rejects cease fire – Ban Ki Moon Suports Israel

UN’s Ban condemns rocket fire, Hamas use of civilian sites; IDF soldier killed | The Times of Israel.

UPDATE

Ban says no country would accept rockets

“I am standing with a very heavy heart,” says Ban Ki-moon. “As we speak there are rockets from Hamas and Islamic Jihad continued to be fired in Israel.”

“We condemn strongly the rocket attacks. These must stop immediately. We condemn the use of civilians sites, schools, hospitals and other civilian facilities for military purposes. No country would accept the rockets raining down on its territory. All countries and parties have an obligation to protect its citizens.”

‘We will act decisively to end the threat’ — Netanyahu

Israel will “act decisively to end the threat to its citizens,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tells UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at a joint press conference.

“Hamas builds terrorist tunnels under hospitals, mosques, and schools,” Netanyahu emphasizes.

Netanyahu underscored the fact that Hamas rejected ceasefires before Israel responded, and during the fighting.

“The international community must take a clear stance” and hold Hamas accountable, says Netanyahu, for rejecting ceasefires and initiating the hostilities.

“They are committing a double war crime. They want more civilian casualties, whereas we want no civilian casualties.”

Netanyahu added that the people of Gaza are “the victims of the brutal hamas regime, they are holding them hostage.”

Continuing to focus on Hamas violations, Netanyahu said Hamas is preventing civilians of Gaza from going to the field hospital Israel built for Gazan civilians. “I believe that you understand this, it is the right of every state to defend itself, and israel will do what it needs to do to defend ourselves.”

“This is not only our right, this is our duty.”
