Netanyahu: We're 'Turning Back' the Disengagement


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the nation and answered reporters' questions Sunday evening during the prime time newscasts after 8:00 p.m., and spelled out relatively modest aims for Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, which will end its 13th day Sunday night.

In response to a question, Netanyahu said that Israel has embarked on a gradual process of undoing the harm done by the 2005 unilateral Gaza withdrawal known as the Disengagement, which allowed Hamas to take over Gaza, following a civil war with Fatah in 2007.
