Sderot mayor urges Gaza op, says it’s time ‘to hit the terrorists hard’

The mayor of the rocket-battered town of Sderot, Alon Davidi, says it’s time for a major military operation in Gaza that will return the quiet to his city.

“It’s time for an action or an operation in Gaza,” Davidi says, addressing ministers in the security cabinet who are set to meet at 6 p.m. in Tel Aviv to decide how to proceed in light of the escalation in violence since yesterday in Gaza.

“We have to hit the terrorists hard and bring back our routine to our own lives. For our part, we are ready and willing to give the army and decision-makers the time and space they need to return quiet to this region,” he adds.
