Netanyahu: Rocket barrage a direct result of Kadima leadership

Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday blamed Kadima for ongoing rocket fire on the South. "In the last 24 hours, and at this very moment, missiles and Kassams are falling on Sderot, Ashkelon, Netivot, Sha'ar Hanegev, and the circle is widening," he said. Speaking at the first meeting of the security-diplomatic team he assembled, the Likud chair called the "lawlessness… is a direct result of the capabilities of those that lead Kadima." The meeting was also attended by Likud members MK Yuval Steinitz, former IDF chief of General Staff Moshe Ya'alon and MK Silvan Shalom.
