PM tells IAF pilots to train for next campaign

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu indicated little confidence Sunday in the durability of the cease fire with Hamas, telling pilots who took part in Operation Pillar of Defense they could go now prepare for the next campaign, and reservists that they would likely be needed again later.
Netanyahu, who visited the Palmachim air base, told the pilots that they accurately carried out the missions set out for them. "If the quiet is kept, you can continue preparing for the next campaign," he said.
But if the quiet was violated, he warned, "you will go back to hitting what remains of the Hamas stockpile of weapons."
