Deputy Economy Minister Yair Golan says Israel must consider “tough steps” against Gaza’s Hamas rulers following the deadly terror attack in Elad last night.

“The incitement cannot go unanswered,” he told Army Radio.

Hamas praised the attack in Elad, which left three dead, but did not claim responsibility. Yahya Sinwar, the Hamas leader in Gaza, called last weekend for Palestinians to attack Israelis with any weapon at their disposal, including axes.
