Barak: Israel must prepare for Islamic Jihad response to air strikes

Israel must take precautions and be on the alert for a possible response by the Islamic Jihad to recent IAF air strikes that killed a number of its members, Defense Minister Ehud Barak told US security coordinator James Jones on Tuesday. Barak told Jones that Israel "must hope that the IDF successes [in Gaza] continue to prevent rocket attacks against the western Negev."
