Vice Premier Shalom: Elections won't impact IDF activities

Vice Premier Silvan Shalom told Israel Radio on Sunday that upcoming national elections will have no effect on IDF activities in the Gaza Strip.
"Whoever thinks that we can send a million people to suffer rockets and shock because of elections is crazy," Shalom said. "This is an untenable situation. There are old people there (in the South) who can't move from place to place (when the sirens sound.)"
