Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday vowed retribution for rocket fire into southern Israel from the Gaza Strip overnight Saturday, saying, "I am entirely obligated to make clear to the terrorists that they will not get away with this without a response."

Terrorists fired two Grad rockets into Israel overnight Saturday, damaging two buildings in Netivot and lightly injuring seven civilians.

At the opening of a meeting with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle on Sunday, Netanyahu said, "You arrived on a day when our security is once again being tested...They paid a price in the past, and they will pay the price again," Netanyahu stated, apparently promising a miltary response to the rocket fire.

Westerwelle stated that he condemns all terror against Israel.
