Israel: Tel Aviv residents split over Netanyahu's remarks on war in Gaza

Tel Aviv residents reacted to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's warning that Israel would be forced to go to war to topple Hamas in the Gaza Strip on Thursday.

"Netanayhu hold's golden keys to the world. But I think he has got to find another solution besides war," said one.

Some blamed Hamas for boycotting peace in the Strip.

"Nobody knows for sure what it is that is going to happen. A lot of it is in the hands of the leaders in Gaza, what the Hamas themselves will do," said another.

On Thursday, Netanyahu warned that Israel might have no choice but to go to war in Gaza, as a consequence of a recent escalation in the area.

The comment came after Tuesday's announcement that he would annex the Jordan Valley and the north of the Dead Sea if re-elected in next week’s election.
