Oh, Joy

Ehud Olmert hinted that a major military operation against terrorists in Gaza could be launched soon.


Ehud Olmert hinted that a major military operation against terrorists in Gaza could be launched soon.

The failure to scure an agreement to stop Palestinian rocket attacks against Israel will "draw us closer to an operation that will be much harsher and tougher" against terrorist groups, the Israeli prime minister said upon his return to Israel on Friday. A military operation was more likely than a deal, Olmert added.

"According to the information we have now, the pendulum is closer to a decision to embark on a harsh operation in the Gaza Strip than it is to an agreement with the terror organizations," Olmert said.
