Netanyahu: Every Hamas member – they are ISIS – will be destroyed
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks from Tel Aviv with an update after a Hamas terrorist attack killed thousands.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered an address from Tel Aviv Wednesday, saying that “every Hamas fighter…will be destroyed,” and praised President Joe Biden for his “heartfelt” support.
Netanyahu, whose speech was delivered in Hebrew and translated by a Fox News translator, opened his speech by affirming that he and opposition leaders, former Prime Minister Yair Lapid and former Defense Minister Benny Gantz, formed an emergency unity government days after the deadliest attack on Jews since the Holocaust was carried out by Hamas terrorists.
Netanyahu described the atrocities carried out by Hamas terrorists, including the beheading of babies and burning Israelis alive in their homes.
“How horrific it is, how painful it is,” he said. The prime minister said that every person in Israel knows someone who lost their lives in the attacks on October 7.

“The nation of Israel lives and together, unified, we will win.” Netanyahu stated.
Netanyahu went on to praise President Biden for his remarks earlier on Wednesday, calling the speech “heartfelt” and “moving.”
