Former minister Tzachi Hanegbi told Israel Radio on Monday that Israel does not require permission from the international community to launch an operation in the Gaza Strip.

"Israel needs no authorization permission, nor has it asked for for it," Hanegbi said. "If Israel does end up conducting an operation, Netanyahu will make it clear to the international community that Israel is not willing to return to a state of affairs wherein terrorists fire rockets at Israeli civilians."

He added: "Israel has no deterrence today, and we see that because terrorists continue to fire rockets into Israel."
