Israeli PM says will take any action needed on Gaza

PRAGUE (Reuters) – Israel will take any action necessary in the Gaza Strip after an anti-tank missile fired from the Palestinian territory hit an Israeli bus on Thursday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

“We hope this situation will be contained but we will not shy away from taking all the necessary action, offensive and defensive, to protect our country and to protect our citizens,” Netanyahu told a news conference during a visit to Prague.
