Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon’s office released a statement to the press on Wednesday after sitting on a situational assessment with the Shin Bet security service and the coordinator for government activities in the territories.

“We are continuing to act with full might militarily,” Ya’alon said. “During the overnight last night, the attacks [against targets in Gaza] continued extensively. At the same time, we are continuing to proceed, much to our satisfaction, with the campaign to deal with terrorist tunnels, and we are continuing to exact a very big price from Hamas.”

“Recorded speeches [like those made by Mohammed Deif, the fugitive commander of the Hamas military wing] and the use of civilians as human shields will not change the reality,” the defense minister said. “The reality is that Hamas has taken huge losses and lost many assets. Hundreds of terrorists have been killed, and much of the terrorist infrastructure has been destroyed, including arms, missiles, rockets, institutions, command centers, terrorists’ homes, and tunnels.”
