Defense Minister Amir Peretz said Wednesday morning that the IDF would keep up its recent operations in the Gaza Strip.
"No one can put an absolute stop to Kassam fire," Peretz told reporters at a press conference. "But that doesn't mean we have to remain helpless. We won't let these [terrorist organizations] grow stronger."
Peretz added that the public debate surrounding IDF activity in Gaza could "hamper" the army's operational ability.
