Regarding the murder of Muhammad Abu Khdeir, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said in an interview with Army Radio Monday morning that so far she's been the only member of the government to speak with the Abu Khdeir family, and that she urges others to follow in her footsteps.

Livni also said that the six Jewish murder suspects were being prevented from meeting with counsel "because that's what the law allows regarding terrorists."



Livni also commented on the IAF airstrikes in Gaza overnight, saying "We operate at the discretion of, and in accordance with, the military security leadership."

"Southern residents are entitled to absolute peace and quiet, not partial quiet, so it is a long struggle and we're making decisions in the cabinet daily," she continued.
