Barak: Hamas has Learned its Lesson for now

DM Ehud Barak told Israel Army Radio that the 1,500 targets hit by the IAF have made it clear to Hamas that any violation of the ceasefire will extract a price not worth paying. Reservist call-up was necessary. We had to be ready for an escalation that would justify a ground incursion. In 2006, reserves were called up to Lebanon late, after the regular IDF troops had already gone in.” (Walla)
