“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this video is for you. We are reserve soldiers and do not intend to hand over the keys to any Palestinian authority. We do not intend to hand over the keys of Gaza to any entity, Hamas, Fatah, or any other Arab entity. The reserves are behind you and we want to win.”
