Olmert says Israel cannot ignore Qassams any longer
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said at the cabinet meeting Sunday that Israel "cannot continue to ignore the Qassam lunching and infiltration attempts of terrorist cells."


He stressed that "Israel has conveyed clear messages to the Palestinian Authority and international authorities that it did not want an escalation but would not avoid the necessary steps to protect the residents of the South." (Ronny Sofer)
