Galant denies rumors of power plant attack plans

OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant warned that Israel would respond harshly to attacks by Palestinian terrorists. However, he added, the IDF will not be dragged into a "ping-pong" pattern, responding directly to Kassam launches individually. At a meeting with the press in Tel Aviv, Galant denied reports alleging that the IDF intended to respond to Kassams by attacking Palestinian power stations in Gaza.
