Deputy Education Minister MK Avi Wortzman (Jewish Home) said on Friday that now is the time to defeat Hamas.
"No patient wants to undergo painful surgery or painful medical treatment. No one likes war, but many times there is no choice. A murderous terrorist organization like Hamas must be defeated with all the necessary force," he wrote.
"We have the right strategy and the right tools to take action, we have determined and brave soldiers, and we have great commanders who await orders. We do not have the privilege to hesitate. It's time to work together and to end the campaign," added Wortzman.
