Netanyahu Decries Claim That Israel Slaughtered Its Own Citizens

In a recent public address, Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, expressed his outrage at the Palestinian Authority for insinuating that Hamas was not to blame for the tragic incident at a music festival on October 7.

The Palestinian Authority had earlier accused Israeli helicopters of causing the killing of hundreds of spectators at the Supernova music festival near Kibbutz Re’im, as reported by Fox News Digital.

The shocking terror attack by Hamas on the Israeli state on the date mentioned above hit the music festival, resulting in the death of numerous people and the kidnapping of others, with several still held captive by the radical group.

The Palestinian Authority’s blame on Israel for the attack seems to be rooted in a report from Haaretz, which proposed that Israeli helicopters mistakenly struck festival goers while aiming at Hamas terrorists.

Reacting to the allegations made by the Palestinian Authority, Netanyahu posted on X, “In an astounding statement today, the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah refuted the fact that Hamas was behind the grievous massacre at the nature festival near Gaza.”

“They laid the blame on Israel for the massacre. This is a total distortion of the truth.”

Netanyahu went on to say: “Abu Mazen, who has previously denied the Holocaust, is now denying the occurrence of the Hamas massacre, and this is intolerable.”

“My vision is that post the elimination of Hamas, any future civil administration in Gaza does not deny this massacre, does not indoctrinate their children to become terrorists, does not financially support terrorists, and does not instill in its children that their ultimate purpose in life is to witness the ruin and disintegration of the State of Israel. This is intolerable and certainly not the path to peace.”

Following the assault by Hamas on the Jewish state on October 7, Israel declared war, swiftly initiating military operations in Gaza. It is reported that Hamas terrorists are hiding beneath Gaza’s largest hospital, using civilians as shields against military adversaries.

Israel has been consistently advising civilians in northern Gaza to relocate to the south as the battle continues.

Recently, Blaze News reported that Israeli forces unearthed evidence of Hamas keeping child hostages in the basement of the Shifa Hospital, including bottles, diapers, ropes, and a chair.
While there are rumors about a negotiation between Israel and Hamas that could potentially result in the release of hostages in exchange for a temporary ceasefire, no such agreement has come to fruition yet.
