Defense establishment mulls response to Grad attack

The defense establishment held consultations Tuesday morning in order to recommend to Defense Minister Ehud Barak ways to respond to the continued rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip to be put before the limited cabinet for approval.


According to intelligence reports, which said previous rocket attacks that followed the ceasefire were carried out by small Palestinian organizations, Tuesday's Grad rocket on Ashkelon was apparently fired by Hamas. The narrow forum comprised of the prime minister, defense minister and foreign minister also convened Tuesday after the attack. (Roni Sofer)
