MK Carmel Shama-Hacohen (Likud) commented on the escalation in the south, during a debate at the Ynet studio. Shama said: "The current election should not discourage us. As long as the target bank is accurate the toughest blow should be stricken."
He further added: "No one can promise zero rockets fired at the south but we gave Israel four safe years. The citizens of the south are heroes but they are paying an economic and mental price standing up against the terror from Gaza." (Ynet)
