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.
