Sneh: Hamas must be toppled in order to stop Kassam rocket fire

Hamas has to be toppled before the ongoing Kassam rocket fire against communities in the western Negev would cease, former Deputy Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh said on Thursday. "Israel will not exist with this Iranian entity 3 kilometers (2 miles) from Sderot and 10 kilometers (6 miles) from Ashkelon," Sneh told Army Radio. "There can be no solution without a diplomatic agreement, and there can be no solution without the military wiping out Hamas."
