False Rumor: Israeli Prime Minister Gave Hamas Ultimatum

  • July 11, 2014

A widely circulated email claims Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently delivered a Knesset speech whereby he presented the terrorist group Hamas with an ultimatum that if rocket attacks from Gaza into Israel don't stop within 24 hours, the Israeli military will conquer Gaza and annex the territory into Israel.

There is absolutely no truth to this email.

Prime Minister Netanyahu never delivered such a speech. The text of the email was drafted by an unknown individual who was expressing how he/she would have liked Prime Minister Netanyahu to respond the rocket attacks from Gaza into Israel.
