Housing Minister and former IDF southern commander MK Yoav Gallant (Likud) justified the transfer of Qatari money to the Gaza Strip on Army Radio on Thursday morning, saying, "We don't starve two million hostages in order to hurt terrorists."

Gallant also said that there will be another operation in  Gaza.

"We will choose the timing and the conditions, but in the current situation we have an interest in maintaining quiet," he said. "It's preferable to stop transferring money for a certain period of time than become engaged in a war."
