Netanyahu has said Israel won “international legitimacy” for its military operation in Gaza after it accepted an Egyptian truce proposal on July 15 which was shunned by Hamas. “As a democratic state, Israel is using the legitimate tools of self-defence to try and harm those who are firing rockets at us.
