As Israel prepares to observe Yom HaZikaron, her Memorial Day for soldiers who’ve fallen in the line of duty, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took time to visit the IDF soldiers who were wounded in this past week’s round of fighting with Gaza terrorists. JNS reports that Netanyahu assured the brave watchmen on the walls that “the rules of the game” have changed when it comes to Israel’s response to Gaza:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited wounded soldiers at a hospital in southern Israel on Monday after a weekend of hostilities, where the Israeli leader said that the “rules of the game” have changed in the Gaza Strip.

“In the last two days, we resumed the policy of eliminating senior terrorists. We killed dozens of Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists, and knocked down terrorist buildings,” Netanayhu said while visiting the Israel Defense Forces Southern Command…

“We have changed the rules of the game, and Hamas understands this very well,” he said. “However, it is clear that this is not the end of the campaign and, therefore, I have instructed to prepare for continuation. I have also instructed that armor and artillery forces remain around the Gaza Strip.

“I want to commend the residents of the south for their steadfast resilience, and the soldiers and commanders of the IDF for their resolute action,” he said.

The visit by Netanyahu comes after an intense weekend of fighting between Israel and Palestinian terrorist groups Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip…
