The IDF will expand its operations in the Gaza Strip, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Monday morning. Olmert told the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that the army would decide in the coming days what kind of operation to carry out. The prime minister told the committee that the IDF has killed 300 Hamas operatives in military operations during the past three months. When asked about reports that Egypt had sent thousands of troops to the Gaza-Egyptian border, Olmert responded by categorically rejecting that any reinforcement had taken place.
