Operation Pillar of Defense achieved all of its objectives, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz said Friday, while visiting Israelis wounded during the operation, hospitalized at Soroka hospital in Beersheba.
He predicted that the results of the operation would become apparent in due course, while the Gazans would understand the extent of the damage caused to it.
"The results will speak for themselves, and I suggest that people don't get excited about demonstrations against the ending of the operation," Gantz said. He added that the IDF was now working to ensure that the security situation improves.
