Sderot Mayor Willing to Pay the Price of Escalation


Mayor Alon Davidi of the western-Negev city of Sderot responded, Friday morning, to recent rise in rocket attacks on his region and the kidnapping of three yeshiva students in Judea by saying, "We are ready to accept upon ourselves the price of the escalation, in order to give the IDF [Israel Defense Forces -ed.] complete freedom of action, with no time limit, to hit Hamas and above all, to bring the boys home."

Davidi added, "Our hearts are with the families. We believe and hope that the IDF will return them home safely soon."
