Expert: Israel Can Change the Rules of the Game

Brigadier General (ret.) Yechiam Sasson, formerly the head of the Counter Terrorism Bureau, said on Tuesday that Israel’s Operation Protective Edge in Gaza is Israel's opportunity to change the rules of the game.

"I hope this time the results of the operation will be different,” he told Arutz Sheva. “I estimate that we are currently in a window of opportunity in which we can and should change the rules of the game of deterrence between Israel, Hamas and the other organizations. We need to reach a point where the deterrence will be one-sided.”
