Former minister Rafi Eitan on Sunday warned that within a year, Israel will face another bloody war in Gaza, and said the Jewish state will then realize it was wrong not to allow the IDF to complete the mission during Operation Cast Lead. In an interview with Israel Radio, Eitan reportedly said that the relative quiet in the Gaza Strip was a direct outcome of the recent military operation, but noted that Israel should have toppled the Hamas government and enabled Fatah to regain control over the territory. According to the report, the former MK said he believes that if the new government headed by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu fixes a line of mistakes made by Ehud Olmert's government in the Gilad Scahlit issue, it will be successful in bringing about the release of the IDF soldier held captive by Hamas.
