The IDF will take all necessary action to return the quiet to the South, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Wednesday following a barrage of rockets that rained down on southern Israel overnight.

In an interview with Army Radio, the defense minister said that the IDF was exploring all options in search of a solution to silence the escalation. However, indicated that a full-scale military operation was unlikely at this time.

Barak also dismissed the idea of talking to Hamas, saying that it is an enemy organization that Israel cannot talk to.
