Aharonovitch: Next round with Gaza will be more violent

The next confrontation between Israel and Palestinian terror organizations in Gaza will be "more violent" than previous rounds, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch warned Tuesday.
The minister made the comments during a visit to the police's southern district, which dealt with five consecutive days of rocket fire on southern cities, towns and villages earlier this month.

Ahronovitch also addressed plans by pro-Palestinian activists to land at Ben Gurion Airport next months as part of an "aerial flotilla," and said that Israel is working with other governments and foreign airlines to identify activists and stop them from boarding planes to Israel.
