"Nobody has a magical solution to the problem [of the firing of Kassam rockets], but either way, there are certain actions that the government must take, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said when asked whether the government was planning to step up its fortification of Sderot and the IDF's Zikim base. "It is the government's responsibility to ensure the security of its citizens," Livni told Army Radio on Saturday evening. "We left Gaza with the aim of allowing the Palestinians to begin conducting themselves in a positive manner - something that did not occur because terror took over. Secondly, [we left] so that we would no longer have to be responsible for not only the security issues, but also for humanitarian and financial issues, so that we could arrive at a point where we could announce the end of the occupation - all of which did not happen because we still find ourselves at a point where we are perceived as responsible for what is going on there."
