The Otzma Yehudit party has decided not to take part in Knesset votes scheduled for Wednesday, in protest of what it deemed the government's "weak response" to a spate of rocket attacks from Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip overnight.

The rightist party announced Wednesday morning that it will hold a special faction meeting in the city of Sderot, near the Gaza frontier, following "the weak response in Gaza last night."

MK Almog Cohen (Otzma Yehudit) said Wednesday he will open a parliamentary office in Sderot.

"The weak response of the IDF certainly invites the next round [of fighting] that will continue to harm the lives of our children and the normal way of life of the residents of the Gaza frontier and the south as a whole," said Cohen.

The mayor of Sderot, Alon Davidi, slammed the government Wednesday morning, after terrorists operating in the Gaza Strip fired 104 rockets fired towards Israel over a 24-hour period.

Davidi told Radio 103FM that "the government has adopted a policy of granting immunity to terrorists and burying its head in the sand. I told the Prime Minister two weeks ago that I miss Operation Protective Edge, which we had two and a half years of quiet. We are disabled - this is a weak policy."

Israel reportedly reached a ceasefire agreement with Gaza terrorists early Wednesday morning, following retaliatory IDF strikes on terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip.

One-hundred-and-four rockets were launched towards Israel from Tuesday afternoon through early Wednesday morning, with a number of mortars also fired towards Israeli territory.

Two rockets struck the city of Sderot, leaving three foreign workers injured, including one in serious condition.
