Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon spoke out Wednesday's assassination in the Gaza Strip, saying Israel will not be deterred by rocket fire.
"The IDF will continue to act in order to extract a heavy price from Hamas and from those waged in terror and rocket fire towards Israel," he said. "The assassination during the night is the next layer of an unwavering battle against rockets being aimed at Israeli cities. We will not hesitate to continue to use force in order to destroy whoever threatens our security, and we will do so using all of our means and mechanisms that we have. (Yoav Zitun)
