Olmert: Difficult to show restraint against rockets

Asked by German reporters in Berlin if Israel would continue to show restraint against the Palestinian rocket attacks from Gaza Prime Minister Ehud Olmert replied that Israel would not respond now, but stressed that "It is becoming increasingly difficult."


"I am very aware how easily we could slide into total violence," said Olmert, "but we still restrain ourselves and don't respond." Olmert added that since the ceasefire was declared on Nov. 26th Palestinians have launched over 20 rockets into Israel. (Reuters)
