Minister Urges IDF to Finish Hamas, Prevent Escalation


Tourism Minister Uzi Landau (Yisrael Beytenu) sharply criticized claims that the target of Operation Protective Edge has been achieved on Sunday, stating that the real threat is missile fire - and that destroying tunnels, in his words, only goes so far.

"The tunnels are a secondary objective, the main purpose was to take care of the missile threat," Landau dismissed, on a Channel 10 morning show with Orly Vilnai and Guy Meroz.
