Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch referred to the rockets fired at Israel during a visit to the Sderot Police headquarters.
Aharonovitch said: "Hamas is accountable and will pay dearly. We will not hold a time limit on retaliation. The IDF knows the targets and will strike them; holding close to a million residents in shelters is impossible and intolerable." (Yoav Zitun)
