Likud Central Committee Chairperson MK Danny Danon responded to the sniper fire from Gaza terrorists targeting IDF soldiers on Wednesday morning, in which one soldier was reportedly wounded and a Hamas terrorist leader was killed.

"For every shot from Gaza, we must take down a Hamas building," demanded Danon, after soldiers guarding workers rebuilding the security barrier in southern Gaza came under fire.

"In light of the fact that Hamas has launched a war of attrition against Israel, we must stop all transfer of goods to Gaza to return the strength of deterrence," said Danon. "It is unthinkable that at a time when in Gaza they're firing at us, Hamas receives cement and concrete to be used against us."

Indeed, Hamas has been actively rebuilding its terror tunnels into Israel meant to launch attacks on Israeli civilians, after over 30 of the tunnels were demolished in Operation Protective Edge.

Danon served as Deputy Defense Minister before being fired by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for criticizing his management of the operation. Danon slammed the numerous ceasefires, with the earliest one being agreed to before the terror tunnels were lethally unveiled, indicating Netanyahu was willing to leave them in place.

In the attack on Wednesday, sniper fire set in motion an exchange of heavy fire that reportedly included IAF airstrikes and IDF tank shelling.

To the east of Khan Younis, Tayseer al-Ismary (33), head of the surveillance unit in Hamas's "armed wing" Al-Qassam Brigades, was killed in the exchange according to local medical sources, and two other Gazans were wounded.

The attack came after Gaza terrorists fired a rocket at Israel last Friday in a breach of the truce, marking at least the third such breach since the ceasefire that ended Operation Protective Edge in August.

In response to the rocket attack, the IAF struck Gaza concrete factories used to rebuild the terror tunnels.

Ironically, last Wednesday Hamas was removed from the European Union's (EU) official terrorist organization list due to an alleged "technicality."
