Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman MK Shaul Mofaz said at a meeting held at Beersheba Municipality on Sunday that Israel must return to the policy of assassinations in the Gaza Strip. "We did it with Rantisi and anyone who decides to harm civilians needs to know that there will be consequences," Mofaz said.

Mofaz criticized the government's policy regarding Hamas and said: "Israel can not hide behind the Iron Dome defense system while in Gaza life goes on."

"We must maintain our ability to attack and preserve the IDF's role as a deterrent. Without a deterrent, the Palestinian organizations are the ones that will dictate the agenda," Mofaz continued.
