Danon to UN: A Hamas rocket has reached my home

Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon demanded on Monday that the UN Security Council denounce the rocket fire from Gaza into Israel and recognize Hamas as a terrorist organization.
"From within a civilian population center in Rafah, Hamas fired a rocket at my home, in the full sense of the word, when it landed near the house where I raised my children," the ambassador wrote.
The ambassador has lived in Moshav Mishmeret, where the rocket hit, for the past 14 years.
"We will not accept any threat to our citizens and not a reality in which rockets are fired at Israeli children. We will respond as uncompromisingly as any other member state of the UN would," Danon said.
