Likud MK Danny Danon, the former deputy defense minister who was dismissed from his post during the initial stages of Operation Protective Edge due to his criticism of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, told Channel 2 on Wednesday that Israel "has a do-over" and needs to exploit it in order to "defeat Hamas."

"There is a price to pay in any conflict," Danon said. "The price is steep, but we have no choice. The Middle East is a rough neighborhood."
