President Reuven Rivlin spoke Monday at a memorial ceremony for the fallen soldiers of Operation Protective Edge, one year after the onset of last summer's operation to stop rocket fire and tunnel warafare from Gaza.

"An operation was launched last year and for some, the battle carries on today-  a post-war battle - a battle that sees no cease-fire," Rivlin said, referring to the ongoing-recovery of injured soldiers of Protective Edge still  fighting for their lives today, and to the continual grief of families of fallen soldiers.

Rivlin said that Israel's goal is yet to be achieved. "We still demand the return of two of our men: Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul," he said.

Rivlin addressed the recent rocket fire that has been trickling into Israel and the wave of terror attacks that has been targeting civilians. "Israel will not continue to be a hostage in the hands of our enemy, who does not respect human rights or civilian lives," he said.

He emphasized that Israel would not hesitate to act in order to defend its citizens.

He warned that, "the next conflict could be a lot harder then the last."
