After repeated documented “truce” violations including rocket and mortar fire through mid-July, Livni’s comments regarding Israeli responses are puzzling as there has not been a documented report of a “ceasefire” violation since mid-July. If all is quiet, why the “must respond” comments? Could there be a gag-order in place regarding “truce” violations? Is Livni delivering a hidden message? Could this message be politically motivated?
Further, that Livni said it, believe it ONLY when you see such response actualized. MB
“Israel needs to respond to cease-fire violations, fire against fire,” Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni told Sunday’s cabinet meeting.
“Israel’s response needs to give the message that we won’t accept fire, regardless of which organization it comes from,” she said.
