In address to the IDF airstrike on Gaza Tuesday night following projectile fire from Gaza into southern Israel's Eshkol region, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon, reprimanded Hamas and the strike on Israel.

"The IDF struck in Gaza last night, as we see Hamas as being responsible for everything that is fired from the Strip at Israel. We won't allow any routine involving a drizzle of rockets at our civilians and forces," he said. In regard to the exchange of shooting that occurred between IDF forces and the source of fire from the Syrian border on Tuesday, Ya'alon vowed to respond to such incidents.

"In the Golan Heights, our policy too is that we have no intention of ignoring fire from Syria at Israeli territory, whether intentional or not, and we'll respond to every attack," he said.
