Shamir: Let the IDF Win


Agriculture Minister Ya'ir Shamir called on the Diplomatic and Security Cabinet, Sunday evening, not to hold the fire of the Israel Defense Forces and to order a crushing and decisive blow to Hamas so that it can't rebuild.

Writing on his Facebook page, Shamir said the alternative was entering ceasefire processes and giving recovery time to rebuild to a ruthless enemy, which will end the fighting and result in negotiations on the ceasefire. Noting the advances Gaza terrorists have made since the end of the last counter-terror campaign and the military's achievements in the current campaign, he wrote,  "The IDF must be allowed to win or at least decide the campaign in an overwhelming way that is not open to interpretation."
