Vilna'i: The escalation in the South is coming to an end

Home Front Defense Minister Matan Vilna'i said he believes the current round of violence with the terror organizations in the Gaza Strip is coming to an end, speaking with Israel Radio on Monday. One Israeli was killed and dozens of rockets and mortar rounds were fired into Israel in recent days, leading to IAF strikes on the Strip targeting rocket launching squads and terrorist targets.
Vilna'i cautioned, however, that the situation could still deteriorate if the IDF identifies active rocket launching squads and targets them.
Hamas, the home front defense minister said, has no interest in an escalation at the moment, especially because the prisoner swap deal for Gilad Schalit is not yet complete.
