Chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Shaul Mofaz called for the IDF to intensify its response to Hamas over the ongoing rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.
Mofaz made the statements at a special session of the committee, that he convened in Ashdod.
The IDF, the Kadima MK said, should destroy infrastructure in Gaza in order to make clear to Hamas that Israel won't hold back when faced with attacks on its citizens, Channel 10 reported.
Addressing the recent diplomatic crisis with Egypt, Mofaz added that Israel must maintain strong relations with its southern neighbor. Strong ties with Cairo, he said, will help stop terror emanating from the Sinai Peninsula.
