"The Israeli government will decide on the necessary steps to be taken in order to give Israeli citizens security. Israel has shown extraordinary restraint in order to give the Palestinians an opprotunity to fight terror and stop the attacks. Unfortunately the Palestinians failed to stop them. It is crucial for the international community to put pressure on the Hamas-led government, and the Israeli government will decide upon the necessary steps."
