Peretz: Hizbullah needs to be hit hard

Following a security consultation with Shin Bet head Yuval Diskin, Defense Minister Amir Peretz said, "We don't need to use threat, we need to take action. From this moment on, we demand minimal talk - let action speak for itself." "We know what we need to do, to complete preparations to begin operating," the defense minister said. Peretz added that the goal of the operation was to hit the Hizbullah "hard, so it regrets what it began this morning."
