Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, speaking at the opening of a medical school in Safed on Sunday, reiterated the Israeli government's policy of strict retaliation against those that attack Israel, warning Hamas not to test Israel.

It's important to remember, Netanyahu continued, "that Hamas is the ruling power in Gaza, and it is [the organization's] responsibility to preserving the quiet and to prevent [rocket] fire" from the Strip," even if those launching the rockets are from Islamic Jihad.

"It's not worthwhile for anybody to test our resolve" to invoke the government's defense principles. "We will prevent every attempt to shoot at Israel and we will hurt everyone who nevertheless succeeds" at launching rockets.
