MKs call for IDF operation in Gaza as rocket barrage against Israel continues – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News
Opposition members from Kadima call for launch of extensive operation in the Gaza Strip after over a hundred rockets fall in Israel over weekend.
Members of Knesset from Israel’s opposition party, Kadima, urged the cabinet on Sunday to launch a military campaign in the Gaza Strip, following the barrage of rockets that struck Israel over the weekend and the deadly terrorist attack that predeced on Thursday.
At a meeting of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, committee chair MK Shaul Mofaz (Kadima) said that Israel must take steps against Hamas, “topple their infrastructures and create a system of ties with Egypt in order to prevent terrorism coming from its border.”
