MK Motti Yogev (Bayit Yehudi) called for the government to retaliate to rocket fire in the north Thursday.

According to Yogev, the government cannot leave the attack without a response, "because this is the reality that the other side understands.""The response must be very strong so that the other side has no desire to continue the escalation," Yogev added.

The Bayit Yehudi MK, a member of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, pointed out that Hezbollah stockpiled weapons in the seven years since the Second Lebbanon War and has tens of thousands of missiles, which, he said, could lead to a confrontation to ensure the safety of residents of the north.
