Israel warned Islamic Jihad and Hamas leaders to stop immediately launching rockets from the Gaza Strip to the Israeli territory. The message was clear: If rockets continue to explode in Israeli towns and village, Israel will retaliate with force. Israel said that the leaders of the terrorist organizations, who call themselves “political leaders,” are responsible for the terrorist attacks.
