Israel will act firmly against terrorists firing rockets from Gaza at southern Israel, and Hamas, which bears responsibility, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon vowed on Wednesday, during a ceremony at an officer's training base in the South.

Addressing newly graduated officers, Ya'alon said, "The reality you will encounters in the Middle East as commanders in the IDF is turbulent, evasive, and it demands that al of us be open to changes, and to understand the depth and significance [of changes]."

The officers will also encounter highly armed, trained, relentless terrorists that are replacing states, and a reality in which "terrorist elements in the Gaza Strip test our patience with a drizzle of rocket fire at southern communities – a drizzle we will not tolerate," the defense minister said.
