Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said Thursday in response to the escalation of rocket attacks in the South "We must break the equilibrium under which Hamas fires and we retaliate. We can not accept a situation by which citizens become hostages."

When asked during an interview with Channel 2 if Israel will consider a full scale ground invasion to Gaza Ahronovitch replied, "I do not want to specify what the military options are but we must stop the war of attrition."

"We must realize that this can end a tragedy. What if god forbid recent attacks would have ended in dozens of casualties," asked Aharonovitch.  "We would have been forced to take much more severe or comprehensive action," he added.
