Operation Protective Edge Ya'alon Vows to 'Cripple Terrorism at Full Force'


Defense Minister praises IDF's 'devotion to the mission,' says Israel 'has no illusions about Hamas.'

"We are near completion of our mission to destroy and neutralize terror tunnels in the Gaza offensive, and so far very impressive work has been carried out by commanders and IDF soldiers," he said. "This operation is not simple; it is very complex, it is backed by excellent intelligence information, and it is worth noting the commanders' and fighters' determination and devotion to the mission."
