Israeli defence or offence?

Is Israel’s attack on Gaza really a response to Hamas aggression?

Benjamin Netanyahu

“Hamas is responsible” claimed Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, almost as soon as the kidnapping of 3 Israelis happened near Hebron, in the West Bank. He launched a massive assault on Hamas members in the West Bank which is under full Israeli military control. Over 500 were arrested. He also authorized the assassination of a top Hamas official in Gaza.
