Former Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman responded to fresh rocket attacks from Gaza on Thursday, suggesting that the approach of Prime Minister Benjamin Neyantahu towards the security situation in Gaza is one that will only make things worse.

"Lack of action leads to bankruptcy," Liberman said, adding that Prime Minister's "hesitation", "restrain" and "lack of will" will create a situation where "the residents of the south and then all of Israel, will become hostages of terrorists in Gaza."

"Israel must respond with an attack and not just rhetoric and hot air."

On Wednesday Palestinian militants fired two rockets from Gaza into Israeli territory, hitting open fields near Sdot Gev, close to the Negev town of Netivot.

Wednesday's attack marked the latest attack since a rocket landed in Gan Yavne, east of Ashdod, setting off sirens and ending four weeks of calm.

An army source later said that the IDF "views Hamas as being responsible for everything that occurs in the territory of Gaza." There was no immediate indication about which terrorist group fired the rocket.

On April 24, terrorists in Gaza fired a rocket at the Sderot area, ending four months of quiet and triggering air raid sirens in the area. The projectile exploded in an open, uninhabited area, the IDF said.
