Israel's patience against rocket attacks was wearing thin, President Shimon Peres implied at the opening of the Jewish Agency Assembly in Jerusalem on Sunday, as he cautioned Hamas against further firing of rockets

As he had at the opening of the Presidential Conference last week, Peres saluted the strength, the courage and the dedication of the residents of southern Israel in coping with the current barrage of rocket fire from Gaza.

"We can stop it and we will stop it," he said. Israel has thus far shown restraint said Peres, but warned Hamas that in shooting at Israeli mothers and children it is shooting at its own people, an outcome which it will be unable to govern.
