Israel-RivlinJerusalem : Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman led these aerial attacks in Gaza.This is claimed to be an exceptional action carried out on such large scale by the Israeli Airforce over Gaza in past few years. Israeli Army officials have welcomed this action in Gaza.

Later the Israeli President condemned in stern words the rocket attacks which happened from Gaza Strip. ‘Israel does not wish for any kind to battle to ignite. The citizens of Israel want to live a peaceful and pleasant life. However if this peace is disrupted or any challenge is posed forth Israel, then we will retaliate back equally befitting’, warned the President Rivlin. ‘Based on the discussion with our Army officials I can only say, if war ignites, Israeli Army is completely prepared for it’, further added the Israeli President.
