Likud MK Danny Danon said that Israel would force members of Hamas to "live lives underground" in light of the rocket fire from Gaza that resumed Thursday evening.

"Just as our citizens will remain in shelters, so too shall we force members of Hamas to live in bunkers underground," Danon said in a statement, adding that he approached Defense Minister Ehud Barak and insisted on a hard line for dealing with Gazan terrorists.

"[Hamas Prime Minister Ismail] Haniyeh will have to get used to seeing the world through the TV screen in his underground bunker. Whoever tries to harm Israel will bear responsibility," Danon said.

Earlier Thursday, Israel assassinated a senior member of Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade, Fatah's militant wing, in Gaza City.
