Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Chairman Yuval Steinitz (Likud) said on Saturday that sooner or later Israel would be forced to enter Gaza in an extensive military operation intended to take care of the terrorist infrastructure. According to Steinitz, action must be taken before a Kassam rocket hits a school or a strategic structure, Army Radio reported. Matan Vilna'i (Labor) also called upon the government to send troops into the Gaza Strip in order to prevent launching of rockets into Israel. He stated that the current situation was intolerable, and immediate, decisive ground operations must be conducted, not only aerial ones. Over the last week Israel was bombarded daily with Kassam rockets striking the western Negev and southern coastal cities, including the Ashkelon industrial zone.
