Lt. Col. Peter Lerner on the arrest of Hamas official Hassan Yousef

“Hamas’ leaders cannot expect to propagate violence and terror from the comfort of their living-rooms and pulpits of their mosques. When you encourage, promote and praise the death the innocent, the IDF will act swiftly in order to contain the hateful incitement that jeopardizes the safety and wellbeing of so many Israelis and Palestinians alike.”(IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner in a statement, 19/10/2015)
