Israeli PM opts for limited military response to rocket attacks by Hamas fighters.
David Baker, an official in Olmert’s office, said Israel would take whatever efforts necessary to thwart the rocket attacks.
“The strike was part of continuous Israeli efforts to nip these [rocket] attacks in the bud and prevent them from being perpetrated, which is precisely what the Palestinian Authority should be doing,” he said.
An Israeli was wounded on Sunday when a rocket landed in the southern town of Sderot.
Islamic Jihad was not a party to a Gaza ceasefire agreed by Israel and several other Palestinian groups last November.
