PM: Fitting Kassam response will be in place by 2010

The government is set to approve on Sunday a 327-million-shekel investment for the fortification of Sderot and Gaza belt homes. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert dedicated a speech at the start of Sunday's cabinet meeting to the subject, saying that "by 2010, it will be possible to provide an appropriate response to Kassams in a multilayered system that includes fortification, the Iron Dome interception system and an early-warning mechanism."
