Yishai Calls for Retaliation After Terror Attack


eli-yishaiIsraeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai, who visited the scene of today’s attack in Yerushalayim, said retaliation was called for.

“The series of incidents from Itamar and until today without a doubt requires us to consider anti-terror operations. It will not be possible to refrain from launching an operation… No concrete decision has been made but we will weigh different options,” he said.”I fear that something happened, and without us noticing the warfare began again in the south, along with terror in the heart of Yerushalayim. Apparently the quiet period is ending and I say this with great pain and sadness,” he added.

“I think it would be better not to say what to do or not do,” Yishai explained, “but to require us to take action.”

“Recent events require us to take action. If we don’t do this we will lose our power of deterrence,” he said.
