Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that Israel may reoccupy parts of the Gaza strip in the future, while speaking at a meeting of the Fisher Institute on "Operation Cast Lead" Friday.

Barak also spoke about the considerations of military operations in the future, commenting: "Wherever possible, we should not go to war or perform a military operation unless we have to - this is how it should be."

He continued to say that there are also cases where the opposite is true, where it seems if an attack is not necessary at that moment, but the consequences of delaying it would be very grave.
