Tel Aviv has got its first taste of what southern residents have been feeling for a long time, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Thursday in a televised statement.
"Today in Tel Aviv we are feeling what over a million residents of the South have been feeling for a long time," he said. "I hope that we will achieve our goals of creating long-term quiet."
He added: "We must allow the IDF to complete its missions."
