Israel PM vows to use 'great force' to stop attacks

Text size Aa Aa

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday vowed to react with “great force and great determination” to prevent future attacks by Palestinian militants.

Netanyahu’s comments follow Thursday’s rocket attacks from Gaza on southern Israel and Wednesday’s bus stop bombing in Jerusalem that killed one person and injured more than 30 people.

Israel responded to the attacks with air strikes.

The Islamic Jihad group said they fired the rockets in revenge for what it called the “massacring of its people.”

However, no-one has claimed responsibility for the Jerusalem bus bombing — the first attack of its kind since 2004.
