President Shimon Peres angrily denounced the barrage of Palestinian rockets fired at Israel on Wednesday, saying "there is no circumstance under which they will fire upon on us and we will sit on our hands."

"I want to tell the residents of Gaza and their leaders, they have to decide what they want," Peres continued.  "If they decide on war, what can we do? If they decide to build, there will not be war."

In an apparent reference to the emir of Qatar's Tuesday visit to Gaza, in which he announced $400 million for building projects, Peres said: "Nowhere else in the world would they gather money to build and instead of buying building materials, buy explosive materials."
