A day after his landslide primary win, incoming Labor party chief Yair Golan tells Radio 103FM that Israel should have ended the war in Gaza four and a half months ago, “when we completed the step of crushing Hamas’s military wing.”

“That was the right timing,” Golan says.

“Unfortunately, the prime minister doesn’t want to free the hostages because he understands that would lead to the end of the fighting, and he is dragging the country to a disaster. That’s why we must change course.”
