Knesset Deputy Speaker Danny Danon (Likud), said on Thursday that Israel must act with "decisiveness" against Hamas leadership in Gaza following the Gilad Schalit exchange deal.

"After the generosity of the Schalit deal, the time has come for decisiveness in dealing with the head of the snake of Hamas in Gaza," Danon said in a statement a day after three grad rockets were fired from Gaza toward Israel.

"Hamas no longer has hostages in their hands, and now we must draw red lines that will prevent the residents of the South from becoming Hamas's new hostages."

Israel agreed to release 1,027 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for Gilad Schalit, who returned to Israel after five-and-a-half years in Hamas captivity on October 18.
