JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel is continuing its war in Gaza but is also preparing for scenarios in other areas, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday, amid concern that Iran was preparing to strike Israel in response for the killing of senior Iranian commanders.

“We are preparing to meet the security needs of the State of Israel both in defence and attack,” he said, in comments released by his office following a visit to an air force base in southern Israel.
