Israel doesn’t “seek to occupy Gaza,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insists.
The PM also said that a cease-fire is not an option — even though operations in Gaza have taken “longer” than planned.
“We don’t seek to occupy, but we seek to give it and us a better future in the entire Middle East,” he told Fox News Chief Political Anchor Bret Baier in a Thursday night interview.
“That requires defeating Hamas. I’ve set goals. I didn’t set a timetable because it can take more time.”
