Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Saturday that the IDF will not allow the escalation on the Gaza fence to be ignored.

Palestinian terrorists fired on an IDF jeep patrolling the Gaza border using an anti-tank missile, and struck it. The IDF returned fire, resulting in at least three dead and 25 injured Palestinians.

"The IDF reacted harshly to the incident, and a further response will be considered in the upcoming days," the defense minister said.
