The Gaza rocket fire that exploded in Israeli territory on Friday should stand as subsequent proof to Europe that Hamas is a terrorist organization, former deputy defense minister Danny Danon said days after an EU court ruled to remove the Islamist group from the European Union's terror list.

"If anyone doubted this [Hamas' status as a terror group] then they received the answer now with the [rocket] fire," said the Likud MK.

Danon also stressed that the Israeli government should respond to any violation of its sovereignty, and "not abandon the people of the South."
