Truth does not matter for “Israel”. Buttons Do. To mute.
Shaul Mofaz, a member of Israel’s Knesset, said on Sunday that Israel must restore its deterrence capabilities against what he described as “rocket attacks from Gaza,” Jerusalem Post reported.
“Israel must bring back its deterrence capabilities that it lost. Doing so is the only way to stop the rocket fire,” Mofaz said.
The official claimed that Israel cannot allow “terror organizations in the Gaza Strip” to take Israelis hostage in southern Palestinian territories “whenever they feel like it.”
Mofaz made the remarks as one Palestinian was killed and another was injured in an Israeli airstrike on the Gaza Strip on Sunday.
On Saturday, nine members of the Islamic Jihad movement were killed in three separate attacks on Rafah. Six others were also injured in the strikes.
The Israeli regime has been carrying out airstrikes against Gaza on an almost regular basis since the end of the December 2008-January 2009 war on the Palestinian territories. Scores of Palestinians have been killed and many more have been injured over the past months.
The airstrikes have been carried out under the pretext of preventing attacks on Israel.
