Aug. 19, 2011 8:37 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 19, 2011 8:37 P.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- The Israeli prime minister said Friday that his army's operations in Gaza were "only beginning," the Israeli daily Haaretz reported.

"We have a policy of extracting a very high price from anyone who causes us harm, and this policy is acted upon," Benjamin Netanyahu said, according to the report.

He thanked the Shin Bet security service as well as the army for “wiping out the leaders” of the organization behind the attacks and preventing an “even bigger catastrophe”.

Netanyahu also sent his condolences to the families of those who died, Haaretz reported.
