Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is considering changing the name of the 'Iron Swords' war that broke out on Shabbat Simchat Torah morning. According to Michael Shemesh's report at Kan 11, Netanyahu stated that "Iron Swords is the name of an operation, not of a war."

The report also shows that the names being considered are "War of Genesis", "War of Gaza" and "War of Simchat Torah".

According to sources privy to the details, Netanyahu liked the name "The Genesis War". In addition, other ministers in the government also criticized the name "Iron Swords", and apparently its name will be changed in the coming weeks.
