Hear Danny Seaman, Director-General of the Israel Government Press Office, talking about the nonstop Kassam attacks into southern Israel from Gaza, asserts that any other country, "under such attack as the residents in Sderot are, would do everything - everything to prevent hostile firing at their homes, their children, their schools."
Seaman, speaking with Israel At Level Ground, also charges the Palestinians with violating the Geneva Conventions in their Kassam and Katyusha missile barrages, due to their being fired from within civilian areas.
