JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened on Saturday to exact an "intolerable price" from the Gaza Strip's dominant Hamas Islamists should there be continued attacks from the Palestinian territory.

"We do not accept a continuation of the shooting," Netanyahu told reporters. "It (Hamas) will have to understand, however long that takes, that it will pay an intolerable price, from its perspective, for continuation of the shooting."

Meanwhile, in a televised speech Saturday night, he said Israel is prepared to continue fighting guerrillas in the Gaza Strip after the army completes its primary mission of destroying cross-border tunnels from the territory.

"After completing the anti-tunnel operation, the IDF (Israel Defence Forces) will act and continue to act, in accordance with our security needs and only according to our defense needs, until we achieve our objective of restoring security to you, Israel's citizens," he said.

"We will take as much time as necessary, and will exert as much force as needed," he said.
