Strategic Affairs Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Friday morning that Israel had not determined what its goals were for the IDF operations in Gaza. In an interview with Army Radio, Lieberman said that Israel must send ground forces into the Gaza Strip, split the area in three parts, take control of the Philadelphi corridor, and after calm was restored, hand over control to a multinational force of NATO troops. He added that "the target is not the Kassam cells. The state of Israel decided in its time that the goal was to achieve peace with the Palestinians. This is an illusion. It's impossible to reach a peace agreement."
