National Infrastructures Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer said Monday that Israel's cutbacks in the fuel and electricity supply to Gaza were a final attempt to avoid a military operation that would cause dozens of civilian casualties. "What's the alternative? The alternative is that tomorrow or the next day we'll be forced to bring three or four divisions and go into Gaza," Ben-Eliezer said in an interview on Israel Radio. "What will the results be then?" "There's nothing we haven't tried," he said.
