Several hours after a Grad rocket strike on a home in a Ashkelon residential area on Monday, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert arrived for a visit with mayors of southern cities.
The Prime Minister stated, “We will end attacking Gaza if two conditions will be fulfilled – Hamas will stop firing and there will no longer be entry for weapons into the Gaza Strip. If the conditions will be fulfilled, we will cease the fighting. If not, we will fight until they will be fulfilled. Will this take time? This will take time.”
