IDF: We have enough arms for Rafah; PM: ‘We’ll fight with our fingernails’ if needed

The Times of Israel reports: “The Israel Defense Forces asserted Thursday that the military had enough munitions for its planned missions, after United States President Joe Biden threatened that some arms shipments would be frozen if Israel launched a planned offensive in southern Gaza’s Rafah.

‘The IDF has armaments for the missions it is planning, including missions in Rafah. We have what we need,’ IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said, responding to a question at a press conference…

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in his first direct response Thursday to Biden’s warning, said that if Israel ‘has to stand alone, we will stand alone.’

‘During the War of Independence 76 years ago, we were few against many,’ he said. ‘We had no weapons, there was an arms embargo on Israel, but with the strength of the soul, the bravery and the unity within us — we won.’

‘Today we are much stronger,’ Netanyahu continued. ‘We are determined and we are united to defeat our enemy and those who seek to destroy us… If we need to, we will fight with our fingernails. But we have much more than fingernails.’…”
