Ya'alon: Hamas has Paid and Will Pay Until Rockets Stop

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said, Friday, that Hamas has already paid a heavy price for its attacks on Israel and will continue to pay until it stops the rocket fire on Israeli targets from its Gaza stronghold.

Speaking ahead of a cabinet meeting on the Israel Defense Forces' Protective Edge counter-terror campaign in Gaza, Ya'alon said, "Whoever tries to disrupt our lives, we will hit him hard and cause him to regret his actions. The Protective Edge campaign will continue as long as needed, until quiet and security return to Israel."
