No one will stop Israel in its war against the Hamas terrorist organization, stated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to The Times of Israel.

"What happened on October 7 will not happen again," the prime minister vowed, referring to the devastating offensive by the terrorist group ruling the Gaza Strip three months ago.

Netanyahu argues that the 2024 budget update, which will be put to a vote tomorrow, "will enable the continuation of the war."

"We are on the path to victory and we will not stop until we achieve victory. We will not compromise and we will not stop," he said.

According to the Prime Minister, earlier this week he told U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken: "This is not only our war, this is also your war."

Israel's war with Hamas

On October 7, Hamas militants invaded Israel. The terrorists began killing and kidnapping both military and civilians. Soon, Jerusalem announced Operation Iron Swords and shelled terrorist sites in the Gaza Strip.

On November 24, a temporary truce began between Jerusalem and the militants to release prisoners, with Qatar acting as a mediator. Already on December 1, hostilities resumed, according to Israel, due to a violation of the truce by Hamas.

On December 20, Israel offered the Palestinians a truce for a week. At this, Hamas rejected the proposal.
