Lapid: Israel will Retaliate against Gaza Rockets

Finance Minister Lapid responded to the Rocket fire from Gaza Sunday night, "It is our responsibility to facilitate the defense of Israeli citizens, and we will not avoid doing so. Hamas may not have fired, but the buck stops with them, and they will be held accountable if the rockets continue. Nonetheless, there is no agenda of a military campaign to recapture Gaza Strip, only to decisively prevent any terrorist activity."
