December 26, 2006 23:14

Following a Tuesday evening Kassam rocket attack on Sderot that left two ninth-grade boys moderately to seriously wounded, Defense Minister Amir Peretz called Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and urged him to change Israel's restraint policy. Peretz planned to convene defense officials for a consultation on the situation on Wednesday. "We cannot continue to restrain ourselves," Peretz said to the prime minister. "We cannot let Islamic Jihad do whatever they want, and we need to take action to stop the Kassams."
