Yaalon: Israel Will Come Down Hard on Provocation


Minister of Defense Moshe ("Boogie") Yaalon made his way to Soroko Hospital in Beer Sheva this morning (Sunday) to visit the soldier's who were injured in last Thursday's explosion at the Gaza Strip border. Yaalon wished the soldiers a full and speedy recovery, and told them that all provocation would elicit a harsh response from Israel.

"Hamas knows this and is deterred by this, and is therefore quiet for the moment.  However, they are preparing for the next onslaught of violence," Yaalon explained.
