Ramon: Kassam fire is a 'war crime'

"Whoever fires Kassams at Israel is a war criminal according to international conventions," said Vice Premier Haim Ramon. During Sunday's cabinet meeting, Ramon insisted that "whoever is involved directly or indirectly should be targeted by the IDF." Regarding the possibility of a ceasefire with Hamas, the vice premier said that as soon as "Hamas stops firing Kassams there will be a tahadiya (a period of calm)." "We will not negotiate with them," he stressed.
