Eshkol Regional Council head Haim Yalin, who met Defense Minister Ehud Barak after Thursday's fatal mortar shell attack on Kibbutz Nir Oz, said that he got the impression that a wide-scale IDF operation in Gaza wasn't close.

"We don't care if it is a military operation or a peace deal. All we want is security," he continued.
