Israeli Defence Force has activated Operation Sword of Iron with the aim of revenging an unprovoked attack by Hamas, a militant group of the Palestinian Authority.

Furious Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said minutes after the attack  urged civilians in  Gaza  to flee as Israeli Defence Forces seeks to revenge “this black day” in which Hamas killed over 200 Israelis.

He said “I say to the residents of Gaza: get out of there now, because we will act everywhere and with all the strength,” Netanyahu said in a video address to Israeli citizens.

He said Hamas has started “a cruel and evil war” but “we will win this war.

The price of that victory, he said, “is too heavy to bear. This is a very difficult day for all of us.”

“What happened today is not seen in Israel – and I will make sure that it does not happen again. The entire government stands behind this decision,” Netanyahu said.

He offered his condolences to the bereaved families and said he prayed for the recovery of the wounded and for the safety of the hostages.

Netanyahu warned Hamas that it was “responsible” the safety of the hostages.

“Israel will come to account with anyone who harms one hair of their head,” he added.

Netanyahu cautioned Israelis, “this war will take time. She will be hard. Challenging days are still ahead. But I can guarantee one thing: with the help of God, with the help of the joint forces of all of us, with the help of our faith in the eternity of Israel – we will win.”
