MK Hotovely: Concessions to Hamas Show Contempt for IDF's Valiant Efforts


Deputy Minister of Transportation,Tzipi Hotovely (Likud), spoke harshly about the impending agreement with Hamas that appears to be on the horizon.

"An agreement with Hamas will neutralize all the progress we made so far during Operation Protective Edge, and will truly turn Hamas into the victor," she said.

"The government must work at worsening the conditions in Gaza to pressure them to capitulate. We must cut off their electricity, and stop the transfer of goods into the Gaza Strip. Each concession we make to Hamas, shows a vile contempt for the heroic sacrifices of our soldiers to bring stability to the area during this last campaign," she added.
