Speaking during a meeting with IDF officials to assess the tense situation in southern Israel, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said: "Those who try to fire towards Israel or will be involved in firing towards Israel will bear the responsibility."
"The IDF's response last night was the harshest since Operation Pillar of Defense was carried out. Terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip will pay a heavy price. We have a wide range of possibilities that we do not hesitate to follow in order to continue and respond forcefully," the Defense Minister added. (Yoav Zitun)
