Peres visits Ashkelon 'to salute the residents'

President Shimon Peres paid a solidarity visit to Ashdod, to help strengthen the morale of the population, which is under constant threat of rocket fire from Gaza.
He was briefed by Ashdod Mayor Yehiel Lasri whom he told: "I came to Ashdod to salute the residents, who have stood firm in the face of terrorist threats and rockets. I am extremely proud of them." While Israel is not interested in yet another war or any kind of escalation of violence in the region said Peres, the security forces and the IDF are on the alert and ready to act instantly to ensure that Israeli mothers will be able to sleep more peacefully at night.
