Israel issues warning over fire from Gaza, Golan


Hawkish Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon warned Wednesday that Israel would respond to any attacks on its territory and would not allow its civilians or armed forces to come under fire "in any form".

His warning came after Gaza militants during the night fired a rocket into southern Israel and Syrian mortar and small-arms fire hit the Israeli-occupied sector of the Golan heights.

"We shall not allow in any form the establishment of a routine of sporadic firing on our civilians or on our forces," Yaalon said in a statement.
