Ahead of the expected Wednesday release of the state comptroller’s report on the cabinet’s handling of the 2014 Gaza war, MK Tzipi Livni (Zionist Union) says the political brouhaha over the expected censuring of Israel’s leaders at the time is a distraction.
“We should have solved the problem [of Hamas’s terror tunnels] ahead of time. The fact that this wasn’t done by the time the operation [Protective Edge] began is a great failure,” Livni tells reporters in the Knesset today.
“Israel doesn’t have a strategy vis-à-vis the Palestinians generally or Gaza specifically,” she cautions.
“We don’t have to reach an agreement with Hamas, but to rally the world against Hamas so Israel has the legitimacy to act against the tunnels in any future operation.”
