Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch on Monday called on Israel to undertake a large-scale military operation in the Gaza Strip in response to continued rocket fire from the territory into southern Israel, Israel Radio reported.
During a tour of Beersheba, Aharonovitch said that the constant flow of rockets from Gaza can not be allowed to continue, giving specific reference to an attack on Monday, in which a woman in the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council was injured by shrapnel.
"The difference between an attack that causes such a minor injury and an attack that kills dozens at a kindergarten is very small," Israel Radio quoted Aharonovitch as saying.
