Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu commented Monday on the fact that Israel is holding the bodies of the five terrorists who were killed in the tunnel blast last week, hinting that the bodies will not be returned without the release of the missing Israelis and the bodies of the fallen IDF soldiers being held in Gaza.

Netanyahu stated during an event in Migdal HaEmek that the government has a duty to protect Israel. “Anyone who tries to attack us, we attack him,” he clarified, adding that Israel will not “give out presents for free.”

“We will bring our sons back home,” he said, referring to the missing Israelis and the bodies of the two fallen Israeli soldiers being held captive in Gaza. “There are no free presents.”
