Netanyahu cuts short U.S. trip after rocket attack from GazaNetanyahu threatened a forceful response to the long-range strike amid accusations from opponents in a closely contested Israeli election, two weeks away, that he had been showing weakness in the face of security challenges from Gaza militants. Netanyahu, who arrived in Washington on Sunday for a four-day visit, said he would fly home right after meeting President Donald Trump at the White House, as planned, later on Monday. “This was a heinous attack on the State of Israel and we will respond strongly,” Netanyahu said in a video statement.
