PM blasts international community amid pressure over war: ‘Did you already forget Oct. 7?’

Speaking at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blasts those “in the international community who are trying to stop the war now, before all its goals are achieved.”

Netanyahu’s Hebrew-language comments are likely a reference to calls last week for elections in Israel from US Senator Chuck Schumer, and growing criticism from the Biden White House over Netanyahu’s conduct of the war.

The prime minister says that those who wants to stop the war do so “by making false accusations against the IDF, against the Israeli government and against the prime minister of Israel. They do this by trying to bring about elections now, in the midst of the war.”
