Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Sunday refused to say when the IDF offensive in Gaza would end, telling the cabinet that the operation would continue until Palestinian rocket attacks decreased significantly. "We have declared that we will never accept the ongoing Kassam fire and that we would take any steps needed to considerably reduce the fire and prevent terror activity," Olmert told the cabinet. "The operation is limited in time, but we have no intention of announcing when it will end." "When we reach the conclusion that the effectiveness of the operation is bringing us closer to reaching the goals, we will definitely pull our forces out of Gaza," he added. "We have no intention to occupy Gaza."
