Italian Foreign Minister Visits Rocket-Stricken Southern City

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman escorted his Italian counterpart Federica Mogherini on a visit to the southern port city of Ashdod, which has been battered repeatedly by rockets from the Gaza Strip.

The two visited a spot where, just one hour before, a rocket had struck in a residential area. Liberman pointed out that rocket fire against Ashdod was clearly targeting Israeli civilians, in violation of international law.
