Reacting to the incident newly appointed Home Front Defense Minister Avi Dichter said that Israel will have to alter its deterrence strategy vis-a-vis Gaza-based terrorism, the Jerusalem Post reported.
“Israel cannot tolerate rockets being rained down on it, he said, stressing that Israel needs to initiate at a time of its choosing a process of devising a ‘complete deterrence strategy to stop the terror,'” wrote the Post.
