Lapid: We need an exit strategy to avoid occupying Gaza

Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid on Saturday praised the government's "disproportionate" attacks on Gaza, but said an exit strategy was necessary to avoid re-occupying the Strip.
"The government is acting rightly, and a disproportionate reaction was necessary because we cannot allow Hamas to control the level of the flames," Lapid said.
"Now we must decide what our exit strategy is, because what we don't want is to occupy Gaza. Our goal is to return quiet, and at the same time to conduct diplomatic negotiations with the Palestinian Authority," he continued.
