There will be no immunity for those firing rockets on Israel from Gaza, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday morning.

Netanyahu's comments, before meeting Quartet envoy Tony Blair, came amid the latest round of missile and rocket fire from Gaza, and the IDF actions to combat it.

"We will not allow anyone to arm themselves and fire rockets on us, and think they can do this with impunity," Netanyahu said, explaining the IDF's retaliatory policy. "They  are not going to get away with it."

"We attacked them before, we attacked them after and we're going to prevent them from arming themselves," he said. "This is our policy. This is a very different policy that I put in. You don’t let them get away with it. And they know that's what we're doing."

Since coming into power, Netanyahu's policy has been to respond immediately to all rocket attacks from Gaza.
