If Hamas wants Gazan mothers to sleep beside their babies, they also have to let Jewish mothers do the same, President Shimon Peres told CNN Monday.

Gaza terrorists to attack Israel with rockets and missiles Tuesday, despite an announced ceasefire. The Iron Dome system intercepted a Grad missile aimed at Ashdod, and three other rockets exploded in open areas.

Hamas allows “a permissiveness to kill,” President Peres said. “If they want to run their lives properly and serve their people properly, they cannot be permissive in killing and shooting at us… They cannot afford that a million mothers do not have a night’s sleep because they have to watch to their babies not hit by rockets. No country in the world would allow this.”

Asked  how Israel will respond,” the president replied, “We will try to stop it by all the means we can mobilize and we can use. They don’t think we are defenseless. We are careful to respect human life, and we shall be careful.

But if they want that Gaza mothers can sleep at night, they must understand that all mothers want to sleep at night with their babies.”
