Official: Calmer, Cooler Leaders Needed in Gaza

As Operation Protective Edge continued for a sixth day with the IDF hitting a total 1,300 targets in Gaza, a senior officer in the Israel Defense Forces said that Israeli security officials were hoping that a situation would develop that would ensure a stable government in Gaza, replacing Hamas' control.

“We want to restore quiet to Israeli citizens,” said the official. “We would like to see a government in Gaza that is restrained and responsible.”
