YNET: Top IDF officer: Israel won't launch operation over a few rockets
GOC Southern Command Sami Turgeman tells mayors in towns bordering Gaza that Israel will respond appropriately, as with recent rocket strikes by Islamic State supporters.
Matan Tzuri, Elior Levy, 06.07.15
GOC Southern Command Sami Turgeman on Sunday night told mayors of towns bordering Gaza that Israel won't launch a military operation in Gaza in response to sporadic rocket fire from the Strip that lands in open areas.
Turgeman did stress however, that the military would respond accordingly in such instances, most likely with targeted air strikes - as seen in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Hamas, claimed Turgeman, is working hard to prevent sporadic attacks like the three instances seen in the last several days - rocket strikes for which Islamic State supporters claimed responsibility.
The general added that great effort was going toward increasing the IDF's defense capabilities against such attacks from rockets and tunnels dug by Hamas. (cont.)

|Gen. Sami Turgeman|
IDF Southern Command
Teach those bastards a lesson!
Hell, it's even politically correct to target ISIS. Iran does it. So, what's stopping Gen. Turgeman?
It's almost as if we are begging ISIS, Hamas, or whomever else, to fire rockets at us...
...and brings to mind a famous scene from the movie, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."
