(Tel Aviv) Deputy Minister of Defense Danny Danon visited Sderot accompanied by Mayor Alon Davidi.
“We have the capability to strike the Hamas leadership that is responsible for the attacks emanating from Gaza. Israelis are willing to sustain unpleasantness in the short term in order to ensure a genuine period of quiet in the long run,” said the Deputy Defense Minister. “Now is the time for resolute leadership. The Security Cabinet must understand that their prolonged consultations can lead to an erosion of our deterrence,” Danon continued.
