Ramon: Military pressure on Hamas in Gaza will stop Kassams

Israeli military pressure on the Hamas and other Palestinian organizations in the Gaza Strip will eventually cause the rocket fire on the western Negev to stop, Vice Premier Haim Ramon said Thursday. "We already see a pretty major weakening within Hamas; a wish on their part to arrive at a cease fire," Ramon told Army Radio. "The easiest way to bring quiet to the Negev and Sderot will be if Hamas hold their fire."
