According to a October 7, 2023 Al-Jazeera article, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said:
“We will take mighty vengeance for this black day,” the Israeli leader said in a televised address. “We will take revenge for all the young people who lost their lives. We will target all of Hamas’s positions. We will turn Gaza into a deserted island. To the citizens of Gaza, I say. You must leave now. We will target each and every corner of the strip.”
But a lot (in fact, all that I've looked at) of the Western coverage of this "mighty vengeance" speech (e.g. NBC) omitted the part about a "deserted island", only Al-Jazeera and some really obscure websites have that [extended] quote on Google. CNN perhaps comes the closest to having the rest of the speech as Al-Jazeera, but the part about the "deserted island" is missing there too:
"What happened today has never been seen in Israel. We will take mighty vengeance for this black day," Netanyahu said in a televised speech from Israel's Government Press Office, which was carried by Reuters.
"Israel will reach every place Hamas is hiding," Netanyahu said, referring to the militant group behind the attacks. "I tell Gaza's people to leave those places now."
So, did Netanyahu say that "deserted island" bit? (I don't understand Hebrew myself.)
