President Shimon Peres on Thursday responded to the terrorist attack on a bus in the Negev, saying "I have just been informed that an Israeli bus carrying students from school was hit by a missile fired from Gaza. Reports are emerging of injured children. This is another clear example of Gaza's transformation into a terror state. Is the UN able to guarantee that acts of terrorism will not happen?"

"None of you would give up on the security of your country, and Israel will also defend itself," Peres told UN Security Council ambassadors during a visit to New York.

The president stressed to the ambassadors that, "Hundreds of thousands of mothers and children in southern Israel are not able to sleep peacefully at night as a result of rocket fire from Gaza."
