Israeli Defense Minister Gantz vowed today that before considering a ceasefire, he will continue to attack Palestinian militant groups in the Gaza corridor in order to bring “comprehensive and long-term peace.”

The Israeli army pointed out that 850 of these rockets were fired into Israel or were intercepted by Israel’s “Iron Dome” air defense system, while the rest fell into Gaza.

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz today inspected the southern city of Ashkelon, which was hit by a Palestinian rocket. He said: “The military will continue to attack in order to achieve a comprehensive and long-term calm. We can only talk about a ceasefire after we achieve that goal.”
In a number of towns where Jews and Arabs live together, protesters waving Palestinian flags burned cars and houses, clashed with Israeli police, and attacked Jewish drivers in several towns all over Israel, raising fears that the unrest would continue to expand.
According to the police, in Lod, Israel, where two ethnic groups live together, “some Arab residents have launched a large-scale riot.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared a state of emergency.
