President Shimon Peres on Thursday reiterated his support for the ongoing military operation in Gaza, saying "it was the right thing to do and it is being done correctly," Israel Radio reported.

Peres said that he knows of no other country that would have shown so much restraint in the face of continual Gaza rocket fire, and reiterated that Israel must protect its citizens.

He added that the IDF was doing everything in its power to limit civilian casualties in Gaza.

Peres concluded that Ahmed Jabari, the former chief of Hamas' military wing who was killed in an Israeli airstrike Wednesday, was most responsible for the murder and kidnapping of innocent Israelis.
