Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu opened a special security cabinet session Thursday morning to address the IDF's ongoing Operation Protective Edge.
"The IDF will continue to operate in the Gaza Strip with full strength" until the job is done, the Prime Minister said - and not before.
In particular, Netanyahu said that IDF forces had succeeded in destroying dozens of "terror tunnels" dug by Hamas into Israel, noting that the terrorist group was likely planning to kidnap Israeli soldiers and civilians.
He said that he was confident that the IDF could shut down Hamas's tunnel network and emphasized that even were a ceasefire to be reached Israel would continue to destroy the tunnels.
"Until now, we have destroyed dozens of terror tunnels and we are determined to complete the mission with or without a ceasefire. I will not agree to any proposal that does not allow for this."
The prime minister claimed Hamas had suffered serious damage in the fighting, with hundreds of fighters killed and hundreds more military positions, rocket launchers and weapons stockpiles destroyed. Several senior Hamas commanders have also been killed or captured.
The current military operation is "only the first phase in the demilitarization of the Gaza Strip," Netanyahu added, saying that he had communicated that message clearly to American, European and other international leaders.
He also praised the soldiers of the IDF, as well as Chief of Staff Benny Gantz and Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon for their "extraordinary" efforts during the operation, and assured the Israeli public that the government was working "day and night" to secure the citizens of Israel.

Stay Strong, Bibi.
Why can’t he be OUR president?
Still hammering.. (LIVE)
Do what needs to be done. Forget Obama, most of america already has..
We are behind you..
(and when your done there, we have an opening as president for ya!)
Because he doesn’t support terror and that disqualifies him according to Democrats.
He could get the job done more quickly using the right tools...
paging Sam Cohen, paging Sam Cohen...
Isn’t it amazing that there are so many Jews in the Democrap party, and none of them are speaking out against the traitor Obama and the traitor John Kerrys support of Hamas?
Calling Chuck Schumer, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Dianne Feinstein, Steve Israel, Steve Cohen, Adam Schiff, Carl Levin on and on ...How does it feel to be a member and supporter of the United states version of the Nazi party?
Y E S
About F ing time... I love you Bibi, but you have stopped time and again. Finish it.
Chazak u’baruch, Bibi!
Wipe them out. All of them.
I wish BiBi all the luck in the world. I know he faces a mountain of opposition from the world. Even our own president in the USA supports Hamas (I have no idea why) over Israel. I hope Israel prevails and shows the world they can beat even the US intervention of helping the Hamas.
Ya, I wish....
Ani omedet 'im Yisrael!
That is the General Paton way. Fight until there is a clear winner. The other side has to surrender. None of this cease fire crap.
Ya, especially since a top Hamas official said that any ceasefire should include international forces on the 1967 borders....
