Speaking of the ongoing offensive against Gaza rocket launching groups the minister says the IDF has no deadline on its current operations.

“The IDF has no restrictions on what it can to achieve its objectives,” he says. Although not ruling out a ground offensive Dichter says the army will not endanger soldiers’ lives when the same objectives can be achieved with other means.

“We will achieve those objectives even it takes days or longer,” he says.
