Silvan Shalom: No Need to Fear Ground Op

“There is no need to panic over a ground operation,” Minister Silvan Shalom (Likud) said Sunday. “I remember how before Defense Shield they scared us over entering cities in Judea and Samaria, and ultimately the IDF entered the cities and since then has had the security situation in the region under control.”

“We will in no way agree to return to the situation of these ‘drizzles’ [of rockets], but rather, to a situation like that on the northern border, where there has been quiet for six years,” he added.
