Speaking at a Labor faction meeting on Monday, Defense Minister Amir Peretz said, "The goals of the operations in Gaza are clear. We cannot take action just to please part of the public." The Defense Minister went on to say, "We will end the operation based only on security issues. It will end only when we have met our goals. Don't believe anyone who says we have any other considerations. We don't want to stay in Gaza, we don't want to hurt the Palestinian people."
