Deterence of Gaza Terror Effective - Gantz

More than seven months after Operation Pillar of Defense ended, Army Radio reported on Monday that Hamas' weapons capabilities are returning to levels they were at before the conflict last November, reports Israel Today. The report specifically mentioned Hamas' production of M75 8-inch rockets, which can reach Tel Aviv.

Meanwhile, Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz said Monday that "since Operation Pillar of Defense, the level of deterrence is very high." While he called the border "relatively quiet," he cautioned about Hamas' weapons manufacturing, says Israel Today.
