Benjamin Netanyahu promises stern response to intensified rocket fire from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Tuesday that Israel would teach Hamas a “lesson” and “very soon” over increased rocket fire from the Gaza Strip on Israel’s southern communities.
Speaking at a joint press conference with his visiting Canadian counterpart Stephen Harper, Netanyahu observed that Israel will always retaliate to attacks.
“We foil terrorist attacks when we identify that they are in the making, and we respond against those who attack us,” Netanyahu’s spokesperson, Ofir Gendelman, quoted him as saying.
“If Hamas and the other terror organizations have forgotten this lesson, they will learn it again the hard way – and very soon,” the prime minister said.
There has been an intensification in rocket fire from Gaza over the last weeks: On Monday, at least one rocket hit open ground in the Eshkol Regional Council in the Negev, and two more rockets struck open areas near Eilat.
The gravest mistake in the modern history of Israel, was the disengagement from Gaza, promoted and executed by the late Ariel Sharon. May He rest in peace.
But there is no peace for the victims of his injustice done to Jewish property owners in Gaza. The rockets are flying in over Southern Israel, as an everlasting testimony that there is no “land for peace” option available.
The land from the Sinai to the Golan Heights belong to the Jewish people. And so do the mountains of Zion, the districts of Judea and Samaria.
Lets wait and watch what kind of “lesson” the Hamas will get after the last missile attack on Southern Israel.
