Steinitz: Gaza port would equate 'a duty free for missiles, rockets'

August 17, 2014 10:55

Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz warned on Sunday against meeting Hamas' demand for a seaport and airport in Gaza as terms of a cease-fire deal unless terrorists factions in the enclave agreed to disarm.

"Without demilitarizing the Strip, a port in Gaza will be a duty free for missiles and rockets," Army Radio quoted him as saying before he entered the weekly cabinet meeting.
