Likud MK and former defense minister Danny Danon criticized the cabinet’s decision on Saturday to order Israel’s military forces to begin withdrawing its soldiers from the Gaza Strip.

“The cabinet voted in the spirit of [Justice Minister] Tzipi Livni and gave the IDF the order to move in the wrong direction,” said Danon, who was removed from his post as deputy defense minister by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu last month in response to his criticism of the government’s handling of the Gaza campaign.

“You need to fight terrorism, not hesitate against it,” Danon said. “Hamas was not defeated, and the countdown to the next round of fighting has begun. Without defeating Hamas, there won’t be quiet in the long term.”
