Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday opened
the weekly cabinet meeting with a warning for terrorists and those who
incite to violence against Israel, vowing to respond decisively and
strongly to any attack.
Twenty rockets and mortar shells were fired at Israel from Gaza this past week, Netanyahu told the cabinet ministers.
The IAF immediately reacted by attacking rocket manufacturing
plants and tunnels "used by Iran to smuggle missiles and rockets into
the Strip," the premier said, reiterating that Israel would continue to
react swiftly and mightily to the firing of rockets into its territory.
The cabinet meeting centered on the frozen Israeli-Palestinian
peace talks, with the prime minister sending a resounding message to
Palestinian Authority leaders and accusing them of failing to prevent
incitement in their territory.
