Israel said on Tuesday it does not seek an escalation but is ready for any scenario, after a targeted strike that killed a senior Islamic Jihad commander in Gaza drew a barrage of rocket fire on southern and central Israel. 

KAN reporter Naomi Segal asked (ret.) Major General Yaakov Amidror, a former national security adviser to the prime minister, and a senior fellow at Jerusalem Institute for Strategy and Security Studies and the Washington-based JINSA, the Jewish Institute for National Security of America, where the security situation is headed.
