Peretz: Hamas leaders will pay if civilians harmed

Defense Minister Amir Peretz warned Hamas on Friday that "anyone who allows the harming of civilians will also pay a price, including their leaders." Speaking at the opening of the Labor central committee meeting, Peretz added that despite the ongoing Kassam rocket fire, there were no plans to evacuate Sderot. The committee agreed to Peretz's request to postpone the Labor vote on whether to leave the coalition until after the primaries, due to the situation in Sderot.
