Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that Israel will strike back at terror infrastructure in Gaza in response to the triple-terrorist attack that took place just north of Eilat on Thursday.

"The attacks demonstrate the weakening of Egypt's control over the Sinai peninsula and the expansion of terrorist activity there," Barak said, adding "These attacks originate in Gaza and we will act against them with full force and resolve."
