Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that "we cannot tolerate attacks on Israeli citizens, not in the southern communities and not in Jerusalem."

Shortly after returning from the United States, Barak said that as far as Israel is concerned, "Hamas is responsible for the firing of rockets at Beersheba today and that responsibility has a price."

"The IDF will continue to act in order to protect citizens of the country and take preemptive action along the Gaza border fence," the defense minister said. There will be highs and lows, not everything will end tomorrow, but we are determined to return the quiet and security."
