IDF to Respond Strongly if Gaza Rockets Continue
The IDF will respond powerfully if rocket fire from Gaza continues, the security cabinet decided on Monday after an hours-long debate.
The cabinet authorized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz to instruct the IDF to react strongly if Gazan terrorist groups launch more rockets on the heels of a weekend that saw more than 40 rockets launched into southern Israel.
The ministers also voted in favor of an operational plan to strike Hamas.
UN Special Envoy Tor Wennesland and Egypt said Hamas does not want an escalation, Maj.-Gen. Ghassan Alian, the coordinator of government activities in the territories (COGAT), told the security cabinet. (JPost / VFI News)
