Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says his country will stand strong against extremists, following a string of terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of 11 people.
“Israel is now experiencing a series of difficult terror attacks,” Bennett tweeted on Friday, comparing the recent tragic events to the Palestinian uprising in the early 2000s and a wave of knife attacks in 2016.
“We will overcome them this time too, and strive to do so as quickly as possible.”
“Our enemies have been trying for many years to break us through terrorism. They will not succeed,” Bennett said. He added that police and soldiers have been deployed across the country, with the authorities ramping up the confiscation of illegal firearms in the Israeli Arab community.
