Peace Now calls on Peretz to halt all air strikes

The Peace Now organization sent a letter Thursday morning to Defense Minister Amir Peretz calling upon him to order a stop to all air strikes. "The continued incidents over the past week where innocent civilians were killed is not acceptable, the loss of human lives are not 'misses'," said the letter. "The continuation of attacks plays into the hands of terrorists and will not solve the Kassam problem," continued the left-wing group.
