Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich on Monday positioned herself against a possible ground operation in the Gaza Strip, as terrorist rockets continued to rain down on Israel.

"We are on the eve of elections, and operations beyond air attacks or targeted strikes require stability and national consensus at home," Yacimovich told Army Radio while on a tour of the rocket-hit South. "It could be that such an operation is necessary, but not now."
