Speaking at the IDF's Southern Command Thursday night, Defense Minister Ehud Barak spoke about the earlier incident in which a teenager riding in a school bus was critically injured by an anti-tank missile.

Barak called it a "very serious event that hit deep into Israeli territory from deep within the Gaza Strip. That is something that we cannot accept."

"The actions being taken right now are a response to this [attack], and they will continue as long as they are needed, in order to make clear that things like this cannot continue," the defense minister said.

The responses of the IDF are both purposeful and effective, Barak said, adding that "We see Hamas as responsible for everything originating in Gaza, and we expect that Hamas will understand what is allowed, and of course, what is forbidden."
