Terrorists who try to disrupt life in Israel will face severe retribution, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon warned on Thursday night during a speech to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day, at Kibbutz Yad Mordechai near Gaza.

"Today too, those who seek our harm... Should know that we will know how to place our hands on them, and they will not be immune, anywhere in the world. Terror elements should know this not far from here, in the Gaza Strip. If they try to disrupt our lives, we will hit them hard," he said.

"We will not tolerate a return to a routine of fire and attempts to harm civilians and soldiers. We will act aggressively and with a steel hand, as we have done in the past 24 hours, against terror organizations in Gaza, Hamas chief among them, which is responsible for the fire [on us] and what occurs in Gaza," Ya'alon added.
