The rocket and mortar attacks on southern Israel by terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip are “idiotic,” and Israel must respond swiftly and strongly to them, President Shimon Peres told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday.

“It’s the most idiotic shooting in the world, because if you shoot and you don’t know what you want to achieve, what’s the point? Do they want to destroy Israel? Do they want to make our lives miserable?” Peres asked. “If they shoot, we have to respond fully and immediately. There is no room for any consideration.”

The president made the comments in an interview in his office in the capital for The Jerusalem Post’s 80th anniversary supplement, which will be published on December 7.
