Energy Minister Israel Katz says that there needs to be a strong military response to the rocket and mortar fire from Lebanon.

“The situation calls for a tough response. The state of Lebanon bears responsibility for what happens in its territory,” Katz, a member of the security cabinet, tells Channel 12 news.

Katz is questioned on a tweet he wrote in 2021 attacking the previous government in which he said “weakness leads to violence.”

“This means, sir, your government is weak?” asks the anchor.

“Correct,” responds Katz, before trying to explain that the situation was somehow different.
