Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Jerusalem, Sep 12 Holding Hamas responsible for the rocket attacks, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel “will probably have no choice” but to launch a war in Gaza to “bring down the Hamas regime in Gaza” in order to remove the threat of more rocket attacks.

Speaking on Kan Bet Israel’s national radio four days before the parliamentary elections, Netanyahu said “Israel will probably have no choice but to set out on a full-scale military campaign, a war, against the terror forces in Gaza” , reports Xinhua news agency.

Hamas, an Islamist Palestinian movement that runs Gaza, has denied any role in the recent projectiles, including two rockets launched towards the southern city of Ashdod during Netanyahu campaign rally.

Israel has been imposing a crippling blockade on the Gaza Strip since Hamas took over the coastal enclave in 2007.
