Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the southern Israeli city of Sderot Monday morning, following a weekend of rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.

Netanyahu had been criticized for not visited communities near Israel's border with Gaza since April, as tensions have risen with the Hamas-controlled coastal enclave.

"It is important for Hamas to understand that it faces an iron wall, and this wall is made up of a determined government, of strong local leadership, of Zionist settlement, which we will continue to strengthen, and of course of the Israel Defense Forces," Netanyahu said.
