UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon landed in Israel from Cairo, where he plans to meet later this afternoon with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

He was greeted by Environment Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) who told him, "You have to understand that the government of Israel can't afford to compromise on any thing less than 100 percent when it comes to the security of its citizens. We are determined to do what ever it takes to achieve this [security]," he said.

Erdan added, that he was saying this as someone who had been in Sderot and the South and seen the suffering of its citizens.
