Ya’alon says many days of fighting ahead

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon says that the fighting in Gaza is not about to let up.

“We have ahead of us long days of fighting and attempts by Hamas to surprise Israel with attacks from the air, the sea, and the land, which demand of our forces in the field to continue to stay alert,” he tweeted.

Ya’alon also tells Israel Radio that Operation Protective Edge would continue “until they understand that escalation is not recommended, and that we will not accept fire at our communities.”

Ya’alon adds that the IDF has achieved much up to this point, and has struck Hamas hard.
