Blue and White leader Benny Gantz warned the leaders of Hamas on Wednesday that if they attack Israel while he is prime minister the policy of “targeted killings” of Hamas leaders would return.

Speaking on a tour of the Gaza periphery together with fellow Blue and White leaders, Yair Lapid, Moshe Ya’alon, Gabi Ashkenazi, Gantz promised that there would be “zero tolerance,” for firing on the Israeli south.

Gantz declared Operation Protective Edge that he commanded in Gaza success, and said it brought quiet to the south. But that after he left his post, kites and other projectiles were fired.

He also said he would insist of the return of the bodies of soldiers held by Hamas.

Gantz accused New Right co-chairman Naftali Bennett of “incitement,” for statements he made.

Previously on Wednesday, Gantz and Bennett exchanged heated words regarding the government’s attitude toward Hamas.

Gantz reacted to a statement Bennett had made on Tuesday in which he talked about the need to fight Hamas and the problem with the Supreme Court.

“An education minister who compares Hamas and the Supreme Court cannot remain in his post for a single minute,” Gantz said. “They [the New Right] do not even need to bring Kahanists to the Knesset because they themselves are like that.”

Bennett reacted by saying that “Gantz is the wet dream of Hamas” and “if Hamas had the right to vote in an Israeli election, they would vote for Gantz, who is ‘General Hesitation.’”

Labor leader Avi Gabby responded to Bennett by saying that the wet dream of Hamas, is actually receiving millions of dollars in a suit case, and that the wet dream came true thanks to Bennett and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
