MK Ze'ev Boim (Kadima) said on Tuesday that a full scale operation in the Gaza Strip could not be avoided in order to stop Kassam rocket attacks and to thwart weapons smuggling into the Gaza Strip. He told Israel Radio that the Palestinians were to blame for the dire humanitarian conditions in Gaza since they had caused the repeated closure of border crossings by carrying out terrorist activities. In contrast, Meretz chairman Yossi Beilin said that the IDF had been operating in Gaza since Cpl. Gilad Shalit's capture but had stopped neither rocket attacks nor weapons smuggling.
