Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has condemned the world’s silence on rocket attacks that struck Israel in recent days. CBN News reports a Gaza-based group that affiliates itself with ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks, but Netanyahu blamed Hamas.


In a cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said, “I have not heard anyone in the international community condemn this firing; neither has U.N. said a word.” 


He continued, "It will be interesting if this silence continues when we use our full strength to uphold our right to defend ourselves.” 


The Prime Minister also vowed to protect Israel’s citizens. 


In response to Netanyahu’s statements, the White House voiced its support for Israel, according to The Blaze.


Press secretary Josh Earnest said, “Clearly, the United States stands with the nation of Israel as they defend their nation and their people from these attacks.”


“This is not the first time that I’ve stood at a podium like this and strongly condemned rocket attacks by extremists in Gaza against innocent Israeli citizens,” he added, referencing the Israel-Gaza war in 2014.
