Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, welcomed “Operation Shield and Arrow” on the first full day of a truce mediated by Egypt following five days of battle in the Gaza Strip against the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

“The process was flawless. At the start of the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem, the prime minister declared, “We foiled the entire top of the organization and damaged combat equipment that jeopardized Israel’s security.

We took out scores of terrorists, hit rocket and missile stores, stopped anti-tank teams, and more. We also destroyed 17 extremist headquarters. I want to express my gratitude to Israel’s inhabitants, particularly the people who live in the [“Gaza Envelope,”] for taking a strong stance that made it possible for us to carry out the operation.

Although terrorists continued to launch rockets at Israel and the IDF continued to bomb terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip in retaliation for a few hours after the ceasefire was supposed to begin, the Israel Defense Forces started to loosen restrictions on “Gaza Envelope” communities on Sunday.

Along with other actions, the reopening of the Kerem Shalom and Erez crossings to the Strip on Sunday marked the beginning of a return to regular life as the shaky ceasefire took hold.

Roadblocks had been placed in Israeli communities adjacent to Gaza. Netanyahu issued a warning to Israel’s adversaries as well.

The adversaries of Israel today, who extend far beyond Gaza, are aware that we can find them at any time, even if they try to hide.

Operation Shield and Arrow considerably strengthened this recognition. We altered the formula, he claimed.
