Finance Minister Yair Lapid visited rocket-battered Sderot on Monday, and said Israel views Hamas as responsible for all attacks launched from Gaza Strip.
"Even when the rocket is fired by some rogue group at Sderot or Israel's southern communities, we view Hamas as responsible, because Hamas is in charge of the territory. The fact that recent attacks came from Hamas controlled (refugee camps) is irrelevant because Hamas is the sovereign in Gaza.
"Hamas is responsible for every rocket fired from Gaza, and Hamas will pay the price," Lapid said. (Attila Somfalvi)
