Former Military Intelligence Head: Gaza Goals Weren't Achieved


Amos Yadlin, formerly the head of Military Intelligence who now heads the Institute for National Security Studies, said on Friday that Israel had not achieved the goals it set for itself in Operation Protective Edge and that Hamas is not weaker as a result of the operation.

Israel failed to achieve the goals it set for itself," Yadlin told Channel 10 News, adding, "There is an opportunity here because Israel is stronger and its citizens are strong and determined. The citizens are willing to give the IDF the three weeks to do what it didn’t do.”
