Tuesday on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” host Wolf Blitzer asked Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, the Israeli Defense Forces spokesman if Hamas stopped their aggressions if further military action could be avoided.
“We are beyond that point now. Hamas are going to pay for the attacks they are carrying out. we refuse to be held hostage by this terrorist organization that thinks they can launch rockets at Jerusalem, just here in Jerusalem and the that can paralyze our cities. It just unacceptable. We will deplete their rocket capabilities. They will be paralyzed. That’s what we are out to do.”
Hamas, the terrorist group that rules the Gaza Strip, has taken responsibility for the a massive rocket attack aimed at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem Tuesday afternoon. Late Tuesday night sirens sounded thought Israel as the heavy barrage of rockets launched into the night sky.
