Vice Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon said a "tough response" was needed in order to stop terrorists in Gaza from launching rockets at southern Israeli communities.

Speaking with southern local authority heads, Ya'alon said the ongoing rocket fire is "intolerable."

"Southern communities don't need to be under threat," Channel 10 news quoted Ya'alon as saying. "I am sure that we are ready to end this constant provocation by utilizing a tough response."

Ya'alon said that he thought Israel had not done enough, yet, to quell the disturbances in the South, according to Army Radio.
