"We must not enter the Gaza swamp," said Vice Premier Shimon Peres on Friday. Peres went on to say that it was vital to search for operational and technological answers to the Kassam rockets and to exert the necessary pressure in order to stop the attacks, Israel Radio reported. Peres added that while Israel was gong through a tough period, it was "even tougher for the Palestinians." He stressed that Hamas was "going through considerable distress," which was manifesting itself in attempts to be more flexible to facilitate the establishment of a Palestinian Authority unity government.
