Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday met with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle in Jerusalem. Netanyahu told the German minister that he appreciates Chancellor Angela Merkel’s commitment to Israel’s security and commented on the rocket attack that hit Netivot overnight.
“I want to make it absolutely clear to terrorists that they are not immune,” he said. “They paid a price for their crimes in the past and will pay a price in the future as well.”
Minister Westerwelle said that Germany values not only relations with Israel’s government but also with the Jewish people. He stated that Berlin condemns all acts of terror against Israel and stands by its side.
Westerwelle added that Germany shares Israel’s concern over Iran’s nuclear program and stressed that a nuclear weapon in the hands of the Iranian regime was unacceptable. “It’s not an option and we won’t accept it,” he said.
Two Grad rockets were fired Saturday night at southern Israel. One of the rockets hit a street in the town of Netivot, while the second one exploded in an open area in Beersheba.
Two houses were badly damaged in Netivot, but luckily there were no injuries in the attack.
