Israel cannot remain silent in the face of the recent escalation of violence in the South, Home Front Defense Minister Matan Vilna’i said Saturday morning.

Vilnai visited Sderot and the Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Council, as rockets continued to rain down in the region leaving one man injured Saturday morning. The minister also paid a visit to the IDF's Gaza Division for an operational review of recent events.

"We hold Hamas fully responsible for everything that happens in the Gaza Belt," Vilani said during the visit. " Israel is working, and will continue to work with a heavy hand against those terrorists that want to escalate the situation in the region."
