Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday that he was not surprised that Palestinian terrorists launched a rocket attack on Israel during a peace signing ceremony with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in the White House.
"I'm not surprised that the Palestinian terrorists fired at Israel precisely during this historic ceremony," Netanyahu said before his flight returning to Israel.
"They want to turn back the peace. In that, they will not succeed," he told reporters. "We will strike at all those who raise a hand to harm us, and we will reach out to all those who extend the hand of peace to us."
