Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday vowed retribution for rocket fire into southern Israel from the Gaza Strip overnight Saturday, saying, “I am entirely obligated to make clear to the terrorists that they cannot fire rockets at Israel with impunity.”
Terrorists fired two Grad rockets into Israel overnight Saturday, damaging two buildings in Netivot and lightly injuring seven civilians.
At the opening of a meeting with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle in Jerusalem on Sunday, Netanyahu said, “You arrived on a day when our security is once again being tested…They paid a price in the past for these crimes and they will pay a price again,” Netanyahu stated, apparently promising a military response to the rocket fire.
Westerwelle stated that Germany condemns “every kind of terrorist attack against Israel. We stand together with Israel.”
