Likud Knesset candidate Moshe Feiglin surprisingly came out against a ground incursion into the Gaza Strip in an interview with The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

Feiglin, who is known for his hawkish views, came out against calls to invade Gaza from ministers and Knesset members considered more dovish than him.

"Gaza is ours, and it is part of Israel, but if we are not going to stay there, we should take a safer route by stopping the flow of electricity and money to the Strip before sending in ground forces," Feiglin said. "Bringing in ground forces clearly would have a price. There are other paths that have not been exhausted that would not require loss of life on either side."
