Before leaving for a five-day trip to India early Sunday morning, and soon after the IDF destroyed the tunnel, Netanyahu said “the IDF attacked a main Hamas terrorist infrastructure in the Gaza Strip. There are some who say that the IDF attacks sand dunes – this is incorrect. We are responding to aggression against the State of Israel and are taking vigorous and systematic action against hostile infrastructures.”Following the meeting with Swaraj, Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, met for a private dinner with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, with whom Netanyahu has developed a warm personal relationship.This warmth was on display at the very start of the visit, when Modi – breaking with original plans and Indian protocol – personally met Netanyahu at the airport, reciprocating Netanyahu’s meeting Modi when the Indian prime minister arrived in Israel for a visit last July. This is a gesture Modi has shown to only two other world leaders: then-US president Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
