Every year the Islamic holy month of Ramadan turns into a "month of terror," Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben-Dahan said Thursday, the morning after Palestinian gunmen murdered four Israelis in a shooting attack in Tel Aviv.

"Sadly, every year the month of Ramadan  is a month of terror," he said addressing a conference at the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS).

Ben-Dahan struck a defiant note, charging that terrorism will never succeed.

Turning to the perpetrators of the deadly attack at central Tel Aviv's Sarona market, Ben-Dahan said the West Bank village of Yata from where they hailed would "pay the price."
