MK Perry: If Forced, We Will Launch Operation in Gaza

Former head of the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), MK Yaakov Perry, told IDF Radio on Sunday that “If forced, we will launch an operation in Gaza.” Perry claimed that the current state of tolerance towards Hamas will not be long-term.

“Operations Cast Lead and Pillar of Defense provided Israel with a period of quiet. If we will have no other choice we will have to achieve quiet through means I do not support. If there is no other way we will have to intensify our actions to even send in land forces,” Perry said.
