Expert: Hard to Say Who Won Pillar of Defense

It is not clear whether Israel or Hamas gained more in the latest round of fighting, former National Security Advisor Uzi Arad said in a lecture Tuesday. There is no such thing as a complete victory in this type of conflict, he said, and only time will tell which side came out ahead.

The Pillar of Defense counter-terror operation suffered from overly modest aims, said Arad. However, he said, the aims, while insufficient, were at least realistic – a positive change from Gaza operations in 2006 and the Second Lebanon War in the same year.
