As the government weighed calls for a cease-fire one week into Operation Pillar of Defense, Home Front Defense Minister Avi Dichter said Tuesday that a ground operation was the way to defeat Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

“You can beat terror only with ground troops,” Dichter said in Ashkelon, addressing a delegation of lay and professional leaders from the Jewish Federations of North America who were on a solidarity mission to southern communities.

“[There’s] no way to beat terrorists just by air strikes,” he continued. “You know it very well by experience in the United States. We know it very well from our experience.”
