Yaalon: The Best Defense is Offense


“The best defense is offense,” Vice Premier Moshe Yaalon said Sunday, speaking to Arutz Sheva as Gaza terrorists continued an onslaught that has seen more than 60 rockets hit southern Israel in one day. “Our duty as the government is to order the IDF to stop the escalation.”

The upcoming elections will not bind the government’s hands, said Yaalon, noting that both the Operation Grapes of Wrath and Operation Cast Lead counter-terror assaults took place shortly before national elections.
