Gantz: Military operations will end only when there’s complete quiet

Defense Minister Benny Gantz says military operations will continue in the Gaza Strip for as long as necessary.

“Israel is not preparing for a ceasefire. There is currently no end date for the operation. Only when we achieve complete quiet can we talk about calm,” Gantz says during a tour of rocket-hit Ashkelon. “We will not listen to moral preaching against our duty to protect the citizens of Israel.”
