Israeli PM vows ‘sharp response’ if Gaza attacks continue

Posted by Andrea Pompozzi su 1 febbraio, 2009

JERUSALEM (CNN) — Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Sunday promised a “sharp Israeli response” if rocket attacks from Gaza continue. Palestinian militants fired four rockets into southern Israel on Sunday, police said.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says Israel's response will be "disproportionate" if rocket attacks continue.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says Israel’s response will be “disproportionate” if rocket attacks continue.

Israel was holding to its position that “if firing continues against residents of the south, there would be a sharp Israeli response that would be disproportionate,” Olmert vowed at the beginning of the weekly Cabinet meeting. “We will not go back to the rules of the game that the terrorist organizations tried to dictate in the past. … We will act according to new rules that will ensure that we are not dragged into an unending shooting war on the southern border.”

One of the mortars landed near a kindergarten in the western Negev, but there were no injuries in that attack or the others, police said.

The attacks were another breach in a tentative cease-fire which Israel and Hamas militants each declared unilaterally after a three-week Israeli military operation in Gaza which has left the territory still tense.

Israel launched the attack on Hamas in Gaza on December 27 with the stated aim of ending rocket attacks on southern Israel.

More than 1,300 Palestinians died and about 5,400 others were wounded. Thirteen Israelis, including 10 soldiers, were also killed in the fighting.

On January 21, Israel and Gaza’s Hamas leadership each declared a temporary cease-fire which took effect after Israeli forces withdrew from the Palestinian territory.

Since the cease-fire began, militants have sporadically fired rockets into Israel. Israel has responded with air strikes.
