Economy Minister Naftali Bennett responded to the renewed fire from Gaza on Tuesday: "When you negotiate with terrorists, you get more terror," he said.

"Hamas thinks launching rockets will help it gain achievements during negotiations, so it fires even during a cease-fire," Bennett said, adding that firing rockets were not a mistake but "a tactic."

He called for a harsh response that will put an end to the deteriorating situation: "Sooner or later, Israel will have to defeat Hamas. There is no way around it."
