Outgoing chairman of the Knesset Defense and Foreign Affairs committee Yuval Steinitz warned on Wednesday that the Palestinians were establishing military foundations in Gaza. He noted that the weapons were being smuggled through Egypt. The increase in their military capabilities also included infiltration of al-Qaida agents into Gaza, Steinitz said in an Israel Radio interview. Steinitz said that Israel might have to implement a Defensive Shield 2 campaign - referring to the exhaustive series of operations in spring 2002, representing the first time the IDF entered major Palestinian cities since the intifada started in October 2000.
