MK Netanyahu Calls for Ground Operation in Gaza

Chairman of the opposition Likud party, former Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, toured Sderot today with members of the Likud Knesset faction.

Netanyahu called for a large-scale ground invasion of Gaza in order to end the Palestinian Authority's ongoing Kassam rocket attacks on the western Negev.

"Ultimately, only painful strikes in the [Gaza] Strip will end the [rocket] fire on Israel," the Likud chairman said.
