Danny Danon, the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations said on Friday that it ‘‘won’t be quiet’ in Gaza if it’s not quiet in Tel Aviv, following Thursday’s rocket attack.
“We have a very clear message to deliver to Hamas, if it won’t be quiet in Tel Aviv, it won’t be quiet in Gaza,” he told told “America’s Newsroom.” “We will come after the leadership of Hamas.”
“Hamas is in charge of about everything that happens in Gaza. That was a missile, a real missile,” Danon said.
Danon was also doubtful about the claim that the missiles were launched by accident, adding, “We cannot accept that.”
Danon also insinuated that Hamas intentionally launched the missiles at Tel-Aviv in order to distract from protests in Gaza against corruption within Hamas.
“They had a demonstration yesterday and today against the corruption of Hamas. About stealing money from the people of Gaza and using it for digging tunnels and sending rockets,” Danon said. “I think maybe they want to distract the attention of the people of Gaza from the corruption of Hamas.”
