Netanyahu: Israel wants long-term solution to Gaza crisis

Nov. 20, 2012 5:48 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 20, 2012 5:48 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Reuters) -- Israel wants to find a long-term, diplomatic solution to resolve the Gaza crisis, but will not hesitate to escalate its military campaign against Palestinian militants if needed, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday.

"If a long-term solution can be put in place through diplomatic means then Israel would be a willing partner to such a solution," Netanyahu said after talks with the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

"But if stronger military action proves necessary to stop the constant barrage of rockets, Israel will not hesitate to do what is necessary to defend our people," he added.
