Akunis: No Choice but Operation Inside Gaza

Israel has no choice but to order an IDF operation inside Gaza to stop rocket fire, MK Ofir Akunis (Likud) said Sunday. “It’s clear that the terrorist organizations are seeking to escalate, and residents of the south must not be the victims in the competition between them to see who can be most extreme,” he said.

“We must hit them hard,” he added.

Terrorists have fired dozens of rockets at southern Israel over the past 24 hours.
