Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon spoke out Tuesday against a diplomatic process with the Palestinians that would include Israel pulling out of the West Bank, saying that such a withdrawal would lead to rockets and mortars being fired at Ben-Gurion A‏irport.

Speaking at the Calcalist economic conference in Tel Aviv, Ya'alon said that when considering a diplomatic process it must be remembered that every instance of the IDF  withdrawing from territory led to a takeover by terrorist elements.
