Prior to this morning’s Cabinet meeting, MK Uri Ariel called for continued military activity against Hamas. “We have been wasting a lot of time which has been poorly used, by Hamas and by the nations of the world, who keep trying to pressure us into accepting things we do not want,” Ariel told IDF Radio.
The MK added, “If fire resumes, we will need to embark upon a significant operation, one that is quick and painful for the other side. There is no nation in the world who would agree to live like this. Israel does not need to suffer like this.”
