Israeli foreign minister, last week, said that Tel Aviv would return to “the policy of assassinations” against Palestinian resistance figures in the Gaza Strip, Middle East Monitor reported.

In statements made to Israel’s army radio, Yisrael Katz indicated that there was “an intelligence effort to identify the rockets’ launchers and work to eliminate them.”

He stressed: “Intelligence efforts are currently focused on determining who is responsible for ordering missile launch instructions in order to work to eliminate him.”

Also last week, Israel’s iron dome system intercepted alleged rocket fire from the Gaza Strip, towards the southern part of Israel, by coincidence, while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was attending an election rally there.

The Israeli media said, security forces transferred Netanyahu to a “protected area” while security forces responded by bombing several sites in the Gaza Strip with no casualties.
