After killing 58 and injuring 2700 Palestinians, Netanyahu says his ‘Military acted in self defence against Hamas’

After killing at least 58 and injuring around 2700 Palestinians, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu while defending his military has said that they acted in ‘self defence against Gaza’s Islamist rulers Hamas.

The killings on Monday coincided with the dedication ceremony for the US embassy. Despite the opposition of the United Nations and breaking it’s own tradition, United States decided to move it’s embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

Netanyahu defended his military, saying: “Every country has an obligation to defend its borders. The Hamas declares its intention to destroy Israel and sends thousands to breach the border fence in order to achieve this goal. We will continue to act with determination to protect our sovereignty and our citizens.”
