Netanyahu slams UN cease-fire plan for not addressing Israel security

Despite a United Nations call for an immediate cease-fire Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave no indication of a halt in fighting, saying in a nationally televised address that Israeli forces will act “aggressively” and must be prepared for a “prolonged campaign.”

Speaking to his nation Monday night, Netanyahu said Israel intends to dismantle the tunnels between Gaza and Israel to prevent further Hamas infiltration.

“Bravery and determination are needed to fight a terror group which seeks our destruction,” Netanyahu said, adding that the operation would not end before the tunnels from the Gaza Strip are neutralized.
