Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni told Army Radio Sunday morning, after five Kassams were fired at Israel in breach of a cease-fire agreement with the Palestinian government, that Israel cannot allow for Kassams to be fired at its citizens, but that some irregularities were to be expected during these hours.
Livni, said that Israel, "is at the beginning of a new day," and that "the coming hours will dictate the nature of the cease-fire."
Regarding an Israeli response to the ongoing Kassam fire, Livni said that if Israel was aware of attempts to launch the rockets - they must be stopped - but the Palestinians must be allowed to first do it.
"It is our duty to prevent Kassam attacks. If we allow them to prevent the launches, then all the better. If they don't, we will," said the foreign minister.
