The head of the IDF's Southern Command, Sami Turgeman, arrived at the Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva on Friday afternoon, where he visited the five IDF soldiers who were wounded in an explosion in southern Gaza on Thursday night.
"We will continue our defense mission with determination and perseverance," said Turgeman, adding, "Quiet will be answered with quiet. If the terrorist organizations act, there will be a painful response."
