(NEWS) 'Hamas Will Be Held Accountable,' Ashkenazi Tells 'Post'

"IDF Chief of General Staff says Israel won't allow Hamas to return to attack Israel the way it did before Operation Cast Lead, 'take all of the necessary steps' to prevent rocket attacks.

Hamas will pay a price if it fires rockets into Eilat from the Sinai Peninsula, IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi said on Tuesday in a rare warning to the Palestinian terror organization.

Speaking to The Jerusalem Post on the sidelines of a Paratrooper¹s Brigade exercise in southern Israel, Ashkenazi said that Israel and the Egyptians were both closely tracking developments in the Sinai in an effort to prevent the firing of rockets into Eilat. In August, Hamas fired two rockets which landed in Eilat."
